The first question depends; do you want to do installation on all
computers present? Or would you prefer to have people use there
computer with minimal installation? In the last case, I would go for
ID as it will limit the time needed to perform installations and will
have you up and running faster. JOSM has it's strength in integration
with GPX and geotagged photo's. But you do not need that on HOT tasks.

Second question: Anyone can validate. It just takes a little common
sense and is more of a peer review.

> Secondly, we think it is important that tasks that are done are validated as

> mapper at the mapping party to validate the done tasks. But what are the
> requirements for this person? Can any experienced mapper validate tasks?
