Now that I can edit the OSM map with Potlatch 2 on the MapQuest site as well as the main OSM site, is there any difference? Will my updates take longer by either route? Is the version of Potlatch the same? Is there more impact on the OSM servers by either route?

The versions of the application are slightly different - there are differences in the way the buttons and navigation controls look, for example. But the differences between them are minimal and are mainly configurations differences - different stylesheets, for example, to help fit in better with the rest of the MapQuest Open sites.

The update process is just the same for both of them - the Potlatch2 instance on MapQuest talks directly to the XML API on, in exactly the same way as the instance on the main site does. There's nothing to choose between them there.

Feel free to use either copy, or indeed any of the other customised installations of Potlatch2 that are listed on the wiki.
