Our community server at http://freemap.in can host and provide help for
an India-specific OSM instance, unless Kenneth has already acquired
space elsewhere. Our server is *meant* for these projects and is
dedicated to open source mapping apps.
Arindam Ghosh told me that he will work on setting up a new instance of
OSM here. We'll keep everyone posted. If anyone else wants to volunteer
to work on the freemap server and Indic localization of an OSM instance
here, please let me know.
Arindam is also working on importing the shape files from
http://mumbai.freemap.in into OSM format. While we plan to host this
locally, we want to discuss eventual merger of Mumbai Freemap data into
main OSM to replace the very inaccurate road data for Mumbai which is
presently in OSM.
