Hi, I'm really happy that people want to host it. Answering questions:
I'm newbie, I don't know how things works, I just would like to see
the images able to be used on Potlatch, something like what Nearmaps
Ian Dees: I didn't find any alternate host. All messages about host
the images are on this topic.
Will you do this? If yes, let us know how it's going.
And yes It's Portuguese.
