I have just added this to subversion. There is a "school" tag in map
features, but no "university" or "college". But we can always change
this later if the official tags are different.

I suggest using the following option when calling xmlstarlet:
That way you don't have to name it data.osm and it doesn't have to be in
a specific position.

tiles at home (as everything in OSM) is work in progress. Even if everybody
has changed to a new rendering code it takes a while to re-render the
whole world. Osmarender is just too slow to re-render everything every
time there is a change. It should grow itself out at some point.
