I do not have a dev account, if i can obtain one i'll contribute to tile
rendering of Italy. Howewer I think this has a sense only if the central osm
server will never process my area (or not before an acceptable time).
Howewer in the next future, after the initial tile setup, we'll see tons of
tiles rendering update requests! If the number of indipendent renderers will
increase it will be hard to coordinate all them and put online their tiles.
So i do not know if this is the rigth way...
The problem is the absence of news and roadmaps. A lot of peoples requests to
know at least the actual status of the project.
How will be long to render the entire world at each zoom level with the actual
code? Is there a batch queue running for the world? wath's it rendering now?
Has the foundation sufficient disk space to store *all* the tiles? :)
From other posts it *seems* actually the main priority is in rerender UK tiles
to improve mapnik output. Is it true? Is someone working on tiles
invalidation?. It would be very nice to have this informations in the Slippy
Map wiki page.
