* Ease of download. Not everyone has an SVN client on all their computers.
I'm often using other peoples' computers, and want to download the atlas code
* SVN ease of use. At the moment, I don't even know how to download one SVN
directory without getting the whole archive of all OSM code.
* Changes by non-approved users. Only a few people have SVN access. We might
want other people to suggest changes to the config files (e.g. nick noticed
that dunfermline had an inverted longitude and changed the wiki)
* Commenting and discussion features available on the wiki.
OK, I don't like using the wiki for source-code, and I'm sure all these things
are solveable if you put the effort in. But wiki is a useful backup for more
If the official version is going to be SVN, then at least put instructions on
[[PDF atlas]] wiki page saying how to download it. Preferably instructions
that don't involve downloading multi-megabyte SVN clients...
