[OSM-talk-ie] Problems with the irish boundaries preset and josm

A new stable version of josm has been released (version 9900,
https://josm.openstreetmap.de/wiki/Changelog). So if you are following
stable versions and haven't changed anything else, you'll see that the
townland preset doesn't recognize existing MP relations anymore (it
only offers to create a new relation).

There is a fixed version of the preset, but that version prevents
previous josm-stable version (9329 and earlyer) from starting. This is
a bigger annoyance than an unrecognized relation type, so we'll wait
until most people have updated their josm before switching to the new
version by default.

In the meantime, you can change your preset settings (menu preset ->
preset preferences -> active presets) to match your josm version:
* use http://maps.openstreetmap.ie/josm/irishboundaries-dev.xml if you
have upgraded.
* use http://maps.openstreetmap.ie/josm/irishboundaries-9329.xml if
you intend to stay with the old josm version for a while (why ?).
* do nothing if you aren't affected by the bug or can wait until we
change the version for you.
