As it was me started this thread (and repeating the edits was a lot
quicker than doing them the first time as I'd already got all the
traces off the GPS device, photos off my phone, geotagged the photos
- which was for Flickr rather than JOSM, etc)...

In my case a typical edit session will be something along the lines
* Download latest JOSM
* Run JOSM using batch file
* Download area using slippy map
* Open any local GPX files (such as waypoints, or one's publically
uploaded where I want to join the dots/import images)
* Make changes
* Upload changes
* Close JOSM

So the data always comes from a JOSM download for me.
