For JOSM Remote function to work you must first modify your JOSM preferences to permit this option. After that, when you click on the JOSM button in the Task Manager, the data is automatically imported directly into JOSM.

And when you are a long period in JOSM without editing, you should import the data for this area again to avoid duplicates with other mappers.

If you come to the HOT irc chat, you will find that Divjo is a sympatic guy you can talk with and say you are sorry and want to learn how to improve your skills. That it is all. You will see that people will be pleased to help you.
