I thought that there may be web sites where you can simply give them  
a country code and get usable border polygons back. But maybe the  
self-made version is better as it will allow you to extract other  
things than countries as well. We can always build a converter that  
imports polygons from other sources into our own repository, and  
borders don't change that often.

It's on the wiki ;-)


Until you have your own account, feel free to e-mail me with files  
and desired directory structure and I'll put stuff into SVN for you.
