         Right. It should be clarified.
         "Problem with iD or JSOM"
         As for what else is needed, that is up 
to those who know how to fix either. Maybe the 
button above should lead to two choices: "iD" or 
"JOSM," at which point the appropriate questionnaire appears.
         Does JOSM include a way to report 
issues? To my knowledge, iD does not. Clearly they need to be separate.
