Let's just start off in #sahana-eden ... I can probably answer most questions myself, but just might have some backup.
Both JOSM and Potlatch are actively developed. Potlatch is getting better and better, and is browser based. JOSM is "industrial strength", and mostly runs on the desktop. There is an experimental applet version (http://josm.openstreetmap.de/wiki/Applet) but it's not fully functional, or really an active focus.
Looked at the projects, and see too. Tighter integration with Potlatch and Sahana sounds cool.
The importer is possible as well ... do you have use cases for this? Are there particular types of OSM map features useful for Sahana? Does the import need to synchronize, or just overwrite?
Look forward to it!

>Fantastic -- thank you!!!!
>Mark, Pat, give me the details on where to go, and I'll do my best to help (I'll have the #osm-dev channel open in another window!)
>We'll be chatting on freenode #sahana-eden, but we can send people to #osm-dev to ask OSM-related questions -- would that be better? (This is partly an "Introduction to Participating In Hackathons" hackathon ;-) so we want to get people to do what they'd do at a "real" hackathon.)
>These are the projects we're hoping to work on -- the OSM-related projects are at the top. (I'm going to fill in some more details Real Soon Now...)
>One thing that's not in there is investigating whether there's any way JOSM could be run as an applet, so it could be used in place of Potlatch. I'm guessing JOSM may be too big for that. The main reason for looking into that is the (perhaps mistaken) impression that OSM editor work is switching over to JOSM. Maybe you have Secret Insider Knowledge of whether Potlatch is being eased out in favor of JOSM...? ;-)
>And, thanks again!!!
