Hi Kai,

as a simple user of Open Street Map, Nominatim is needed as much as tile 
rendering. Currently I (stupidly?) have osm2pgqsl to run twice, once for 
Nominatim, once for Mapnik. Maybe a single run is possible?

I found Nominatim setup easier than tile rendering since there is no 
http setup, no live program like Tirex to interface and the setup script 
of Nominatim takes care of building symlinks from the www location to 
Nominatim code, there is no need for instance to have virtual host data 
pointing to a tirex config which can work correctly only if some 
symlinks are correctly set in /var/[lib][run].

Hence starting with  Nominatim, before considering tile rendering, 
allowed me to know that I had something functional and that I could 
focus on tile rendering (in some way Nominatim validated the 
postgres/postgis setup).
