I'm not sure what's going on, but I've added stuff to Reigate
and it says it was rendered today. Either a) It's using an older
osmarender that doesn't know about highway=unclassified or b) I've
screwed up the tagging or c) it rendered before I had added some data
today. Or is there a (d) ?
Does osm at home force a osmarender version? Would it be possible to add
the time that stuff was rendered?
In some ways the tool you've made is just a much less hassle version of
running osmarender myself. I don't mind waiting a day for another map.
Anyway, great stuff.
