Yes Jaakko, very good advice.  I would add that if you don't know to 
download the data first then you shouldn't be using JOSM or Mercator but 
stick with Potlatch2 as it automatically updates the data and is easier 
to use than the other editors.  I always try to return to my edits after 
they've filtered through.
