I have been following the progress of the availability of OS 1:25000 out of copyright maps for use with OSM with interest. I can see coverage of Maidenhead, for example, at http://ooc.openstreetmap.org/?zoom=15&lat=54.77184&lon=-1.57483&layers=00B0. I read Andy Robinson's Talk-GB contribution of October 6th where he writes, "The first full sheet (NX88 NW or Dumfries ) is available for you to try out in JOSM . Just add the URL as a custom WMS.". I copied the url in its entirety (not fully understanding these matters, I readily confess), omitting the quotation marks, and pasted it as a new entry into JOSM's WMS Plugin Preferences. However, after opening up an area of Maidenhead in JOSM and selecting my new OS 1:25000 plugin, I am presented with the red background and "Exception occurred" note. Clearly I have done something wrong and should appreciate someone's assistance.
At the same time, I should be grateful for details of places to find further information relating to this project.
