When I upgraded JOSM I was given the option to load plugins which I did. I
think I am getting Yahoo satellite scans but not Nearmap. When I open the
WMS tab the options I get are Land Sat, Yahoo Sat, Rectified Image and Blank
Layer. I have a feeling that I have to do something else to configure
Nearmap but I can't find where I do it. I have searched the Wiki and found
some plugins for Nearmap but they don't work. The two slippy map options
both give me a message that says "more OSM coming soon" and the WMS option
gives me a message that says "Error".
This may all add up to a bug. There is no Nearmap or Slippy Map options on
my Edit/Options menu but I am not sufficiently experiences in OSM or JOSM to
know if this all adds up to a bug. Hence my appeal to Newbies.
