[OSM-dev] Featurama: a proposal for an application to handle them all

Hi all devs,

following a long debate in the Talk list, even if this is nothing new, 
I've a strong feeling that we definitely need an application to handle 
basically map features proposals and voting, but with all the other 
features we can think about (output localized map features pages, output 
the machine readable list[0] which is under development, possibility for 
editor/renderer/router devs etc to tell easily which tags they handle, etc).

This is something quite huge and I can't probably handle all the coding 
myself alone, even if I can and want strongly to work on it (beside 
Osmafrontend of course ;)). Beside this, I just don't want to cook 
something so critical in the obscurity, this should be a widely 
participated analysis because, you know, this is a long debated issue.

So I've created a wiki page[1] for discussion and analysis, but, most 
important, to have a list of devs who want to join the effort. Will post 
further analysis and DB ERs there, and will be more active after Feb 
20th (University exams... ;))... but will follow actively the discussion 
and analysis in the meantime if (hopefully) there will be some.
