TomH provided me with statistics on created_by=* in all changeset
tags[1][2][3]. Here are with more than 1000 total changesets ordered
by the number of changesets:

  813222 => "JOSM",
  730972 => "Potlatch",
  96066  => "Merkaartor",
  40213  => "bulk_upload.py",
  34625  => "upload.py",
  17443  => "KMLManager",
  7995   => "FreieTonne",
  4620   => "osmtools",
  3779   => "OTHERS",
  1271   => "mat's little ruby script",
  898    => "osm2go",

So JOSM is über alles it would appear. Here's JOSM ordered by the
language people were using when editing:

  357350 => "de",
  165641 => "en",
  57463  => "fr",
  40643  => "en_GB",
  30081  => "ru",
  23435  => "it",
  11881  => "fi",
  11470  => "es",
  8578   => "cs",
  6582   => "nl",
  6029   => "sv",
  5619   => "pl",
  5357   => "ja",
  2939   => "da",
  2062   => "sk",
  911    => "nb",
  892    => "bg",
  514    => "tr",
  502    => "et",
  499    => "is",
  305    => "sl",
  284    => "pt",
  255    => "ro",
  133    => "he",
  102    => "gl",
  72     => "el",
  36     => "zh",

German is far in the lead even if one considers British English to be
part of the English language proper. It would be useful if Potlatch
and Merkaartor also included the user's language in their UA.

1. select count(*),v from changeset_tags where k='created_by' group by
