As a proof of concept prior to hooking osmeditor up to OpenStreetMap, I have 
developed a simple GPX server on the Freemap server, which will exchange GPX 
data with osm-editor. The way it works is a simple check in/check out system. 
A user can "check out" data from the server to edit on osm-editor. While they 
are editing, other people can still download data but are unable to edit it 
themselves until the original user "checks in" the data again. Thus not a 
particularly complex approach but as I said, it's primarily a proof of 

At the moment there's no authentication so access is restricted to my own home 
box. However I hope to make it available on the  OSM development server. 
Meantime if anyone's interested in playing around with this let me know and 
I'll try and set up some test data which can be arbitrarily deleted, played 
around with, etc.
