what is the best way to propose changes to the JOSM default preset?
JOSM is installed on my machine. Is the preset somewhere on my file system and I can edit it to test the changes I’d like to make? Or would I export the appropriate part to a separate preset for testing?
Then, when I know how I want it, can I register on the JOSM website and create something like a pull request? Or rather just a ticket?
The JOSM default preset is inside the jar file/application. The actual XML file can be viewed here: https://josm.openstreetmap.de/browser/josm/trunk/resources/data/defaultpresets.xml . There is a download button at the bottom of the page (look for
Download in other formats). Fair warning, it will take a bit of time for the page to load.
Yes, you would create a ticket with an attached patch. See DevelopersGuide/PatchGuide – JOSM for details.
Since you want to add/modify the default presets, see DevelopersGuide/DefaultPresets – JOSM.
Thank you for your detailed explanation.
I would add that it is also possible to create just ticket without patch. It can be done via Help → report bug in JOSM itself.
Anonymous reports are possible but it is preferable to create an account.
