I believe Richard did the rectification for Potlatch and claims it to be better than JOSM's. ('Claim' seems slightly loaded but despite being a native English speaker I can't think of a more accurate word to describe a statement I believe to be true but have no immediate way of verifying)

Same here. JOSM for main editing when I've uploaded new traces.
Potlatch for minor tweaks and Yahoo tracing. Although I have taken
to then loading any area where I've Yahoo traced buildings back into
JOSM to use the Orthogonalize facility.

I've not been able to get the Yahoo JOSM plugin working for a while,
but gave up trying as I too felt the rectification always seemed
better in Potlatch.
