When using reledmac and familiar footnotes, the footnote number is set on the LEFT side of the lemma text, not on the right:

\documentclass[oneside]{memoir}
\usepackage[series={A,B},draft]{reledmac}
\newcommand{\annotation}[1]{\footnoteA{#1}}
\newcommand{\variant}[2]{\Afootnote{#1 \ #2}}

\begin{document}

\beginnumbering

\pstart
I will put this \edtext{footnote}{\annotation{Some obscure source.}} here.
\pend

\end{document}

footnote error

For me at least this is an unexpected behavior, for I would expect the footnote to go to the right of the lemma text.

I would like to have the footnote number on the right, but I have seen nothing in the reledmac documentation relating to this. Do you have any ideas for changing this?

That is because you use familiar footnote inside second argument of \edtext. But you need \edtext only for critical footnote, not for familiar.

Just do

\documentclass[oneside]{memoir}
\usepackage[series={A,B},draft]{reledmac}
\newcommand{\annotation}[1]{\footnoteA{#1}}
\newcommand{\variant}[2]{\Afootnote{#1 \ #2}}

\begin{document}

\beginnumbering

\pstart
I will put this footnote\annotation{Some obscure source.} here.
\pend

\end{document}
