Great to hear that. But YOURS isn't the routing engine, it is just a
website that glues some cool pieces of 3rd party software together. One
of those cool pieces of software is Gosmore, the routing engine.

That is one of the main goals of YOURS (and Gosmore as well) and it's
great to see it put to good use.

The Gosmore database is updated once a week, so imho November 13 isn't
very old. Although I understand that it's hard waiting for your edits to

It isn't public yet because I don't think it's the right time for that.
There's no license notice in the code yet and the code is rather sloppy
actually. YOURS currently aims at functionality, not coding excellence.

You need to create the PAK file before you can use Gosmore. The process
of creating the PAK file is described on the Gosmore wiki page, but
under linux the command is:
bzcat planet-latest.osm.bz2 | gosmore rebuild
But processing the whole planet requires a lot of disk space and a 64bit
machine. Countries can be processed on a 32bit machine usually (Except
the USA probably).
