This is my first post to OSM-dev, so allow myself to introduce myself. I'm
Brandon Martin-Anderson. I'm working on an open source itinerary server
("Graphserver"), and I severely admire the OSM project.
I attended WhereCamp at Yahoo near San Francisco recently, I learned about
the past trials of importing TIGER to the OSM. I have some expertise in the
TIGER format, as does Schuyler Erle, and we decided we'd take another swing
at it. In the past few days I've spiffed up a Ruby TIGER parser I'd written
for Graphserver, and I'm ready to start working on the import.
I know this isn't the first time this has been attempted, and it would be
foolish to rush in without knowing the problems encountered in the past. So
I'm curious: what failed in the past?
Also, would it be possible to get commit access to the
