Applies to other editors

This page really needs to appear on the other two editor beginners guides. Potlatch in particular as new users usually head there. Those 2 pages have stemmed off separately now, and so this page is skipped. This page is josm orientated, but only slightly. Should we copy the pages and adapt them to each of the editor sub pages, or should they link to here, and this one be made more general, and/or specific to which editor it's referring to.

Potlatch shows traces as purple lines, not dots, so the diagrams might be slightly confusing, but not really. Yes you're right. Other than the dottyness of diagrams, this all applies to Potlatch equally as it does to JOSM. -- Harry Wood 08:33, 26 April 2009 (UTC)

changes 0.5,0.6 segments(API 0.4) and nodes

Of what I've read nodes were referred to as segments until API version 0.4(not in all cases I think). After OSM Protocol Version 0.5 there is no mention of the words segment/segments . I would need help in this matter. Logictheo 08:59, 15 April 2009 (UTC)
