Is it possible to get a standard PostgreSQL dump of the OSM database? I didn't see that as an option on the website.

If we are able to use it, we can report any issues we discover in the marathon test day. I'm sure the new hot-replication feature will be a killer feature for OSM.

While I would love to get up-to-speed enough to actually make an OSM installation, I doubt my available time would allow me to do that - I'd be starting from scratch. But the dataset would be good to test against both due to the size and to test upgrading, version-compatibility, postGIS and such.

It would be even better if someone could bring a test machine with OSM data on-board! Don't know if that could be arranged but one can hope... In any case, we will do as much testing as we can.
