This site

  • This site is a combined online help and bug tracking system for JOSM and JOSM plugins.
  • No login is required to use this site (neither for reading nor for changes to wiki or bug tracker).
  • A login has the following advantages:
    • The JOSM applet can store settings on the server.
    • Mail is sent for changes in your own bug tracker tickets. This is possible by entering an e-mail as user name in the tickets, too, but then be aware that the address is openly visible and you are unable to change that later.
    • Page settings are remembered (e.g. input field size and a lot of other stuff).
  • Logins which have no e-mail address or which have not been used at least once are automatically deleted.
  • Logins to edit the OpenStreetMap database are separate from the logins on this server.
  • NOTE: The secured HTTPS version of this site uses a self-signed certificate? with the SHA1 fingerprint 26:8B:4D:CB:AD:04:E7:50:EC:94:F8:34:83:CE:7C:06:8D:FD:61:3D.
    You need to accept? this certificate as valid to silence the warnings of your browser.
