I asked Grant what that would involve and it turns out it's a massive
effort. So I set up a machine with navit instead. Plus printouts plus
Gosmore on WinCE, Potlatch on a laptop etc.
I'm not going to "force" people to add stuff to the map. That part of
Pretoria is extremely well mapped (except for addresses) because I live so
close to it. Lately I've spent too much time reverting stuff. Furthermore,
we don't want people deleting roads that are temporarily closed with all the
construction work going on and then not be committed to restoring them next
I feel a better approach is to get people to start by using the data (e.g.
OffMaps), and when they find routes that annoy them, use openstreetbugs or
register and start using Potlatch.
