Carry forward from previous Diary Entry:
"The OAuth 2.0 authorization framework enables a third-party application to obtain limited access to an HTTP service. "
I don't understand why this is being requested, and why it applies to me. As far as I recall, I haven't had to grant this authority on any previous uploadings on JOSM, or any other site.
Anybody who has some information, I would be pleased if you passed it on to me.
Since this entry, I have noticed the following comment on release version 12926; a version not mentioned in the Changelog.:
"JOSM now uses a new code signing certificate sponsored by FOSSGIS .e.v (required for WebStart)"
When I go to FOSSGIS, I don't see any mention of this requirement.
Possibly if I don't use WebStart, I won't run in to this problem.
If I'm doing something incorrectly, I'd like someone to let me know.
In the meantime, if I update to 13053, I'll not use WebStart, but this seems a crude way of solving the problem. A better way would be to receive some explanation of the code signing certificate, and assurances that it is safe to use by the OSM contributors.
Hope to get some response to this. Thank you.
