With API 0,6 the edits will not be lost; the uploading editor will
receive an error message when trying to overwrite someone else's edit
with something based on an older version. I don't know how Potlatch
deals with this, but in JOSM you should, at least in theory, be able to
avoid any problems by downloading before uploading; worst case is you
get conflicts that you have to resolve manually.
