We should define a place where to put all this stuff. I started normalizing
the xml files so that everything is under one subdirectory (/home/mapnik/*).
This makes installing mapnik easier. If you have it on your machine installed
in another directory or as another user, you should change /home/mapnik to
your directory. But now it's only one substitute command and not 10 different
substitutes like before. This is part one.
The other part is that we should define a place where everyone can get the
most detailed and newest vmap0 data. What about putting it into svn? this
would make installing mapnik easier, because it would save another download
and everyone could work on improving the current vmap0 data (If ever needed
So I would suggest to put it in the directory
and adjust the directorynames in the xml File.
