For JOSM I think most processes or dialogues are quite simple and
comprehensible. So only a few people need documentation and nobody
Especially for the conflict stuff I think it really is needed and I'd
write that documentation - but I'm lost as many else seem to be here.
So assuming the one who developed it knows best how it works, I think
at least this time it's a job for a developer.
And having written some applications myself I find it helpful to
express my thoughts in words to endusers to find flaws in those
thoughts. Maybe this is only me, but at least for complex topics
everyone should give it a try.
