You have created a linux version of the canvec -to-osm script that Frank
will be able to use when he is working on crating the 'master version' of
the canvec2osm script. (a delayed thanks)
PLEASE commnicate with me your intentions.
At the end of the month, we (the community) will have a 'couch-mapping
party' where we can discuss this. .. my 'stickey fingers' will be out of
it by nov 21st). ... i have been working on this for just about a year
now, while others were working on the geobase. (as i knew 378 map features
wasn't going to be easy)... but i (just about) acomplished it.
You are CERTAINLY welcome to take over as the 'main admin' for this script.
I didnt now know that you were doing this.
I am available on Skype & IRC & gmail chat & email... 24-7.
