Hi all,

Just wanted to bump this thread - even though the wiki has not had
much updates, the hack weekend in Essen is still happening.
The per person costs mentioned will be a little more modest, because
we have had the nice folks over at OpenThesaurus sponsor this weekend.

The main focus will still be improving access to the full OSM history,
and in preparation there has already been quite some progress (see
recent threads on extending the PBF format and Peter Körner's
toolchain for handling history files).

Hope to see you in Essen!
