I wrote a Python script to upload them to Openstreetbugs. Now I'm looking
at OSMOSE and I noticed it also has a category for Openstreetbugs. I think
it still needs to be synchronized, as I see only the bugs that were already
present yesterday. If people prefer to use OSMOSE, this is certainly
possible. I like that they are in OSB, as it has integration in Vespucci
and OsmAND, so I can see while mapping that there is something needing some
Is a plugin available to integrate OSMOSE into JOSM?
And most importantly: where do I find how to contribute 'bugs' to OSMOSE,
is there an API?
