Yes. "Church of emacs" provided an English translation of our info
page - thanks!
You can find it here: http://meta.wikimedia.org/wiki/OpenStreetMap
Abstract: Wikimedia Germany is very interested in supporting the
interaction between OSM and Wikipedia. So the board decided to
allocate 15.000 Euros for some hardware and initiated a project with
two main goals:
- Integrating OSM maps into Wikipedia
- Building a Map-Toolserver similar to the Wikimedia-Toolserver to
give any interested OSM developer an easy possibility to build tools
and special maps without the hassle of building an own infrastructure
Any further ideas? Add them to the talk page or join us in Berlin!
