I once started improving the conversion of the main OSM Mapnik style but 
got distracted and actually never continued with it, so there are still 
some unmerged changes in my osm-xml branch [1].

The results already look quite good, but when comparing it with Mapnik 
you can spot obvious differences without really searching for them. So I 
guess there is still quite some work to do to make it look the same and 
I was a bit discouraged by that.

Also with the style now switching from XML to CartoCSS it would probably 
make more sense to have a converter from CartoCSS to GeoServer CSS [2].
