The last winter I work for implement an a VM that support all the
service of OSM Servers . So I followed the istruction on wiki and
produce an a VM that support API , mapnik renders and standard Ruby on
But the problem is not that If I can or not develop a fork of OSM
server. The problem is that now all the entusiastic User are promote www.openstreetmap.org
website , promote the use of Josm and Potlatch and promote api that
use directly the main server of openstreetmap . So OSM is not a small
project only for a small community user , but We propose OSM as
alternative to GMAP for the application ...
The idea is that if there're some resource for OSM server Clone around
the world is better to have only one approch to develop one strategy
for support a large and growing user community , and for supporting
fault tollerant approach.
The down for 48 hours is bad immage for the project. So I see that
actualy also google code are in mantenaince , but is not down is in
readonly mode. Use backup server .
