When working with NGOs in remote field locations, it would be really
useful to be able to run an offline OSM instance which does 2-way
replication to the main database.
This allows NGOs to gain the full benefits of the OSM data & also
allows the OSM data for remote field locations to be updated by people
on the ground.

I have written up some basic specs & implementation notes which came
out of a session at WhereCampUK (wave at the folks there :) )

There was a suggestion there to hold a dedicated Sprint to try &
resolve the issue which I'd definitely like to see happen :)


Input very welcomed :)

Best Wishes,
