Well, at least it was fixed. It is much better experience than what I had after reporting

some bugs to Firefox/Libre Office bug trackers or other major projects.

 There are issues with Mapnik but at least project is not dead.

What would you recommend for someone starting a new project?

Sorry if I missed recommendations on your page but I found only 
http://www.imagico.de/pov/tutorials_en.php <http://www.imagico.de/pov/tutorials_en.php> and from what I understand it is for 

making images like http://earth.imagico.de/view.php?site=newzealand_whole <http://earth.imagico.de/view.php?site=newzealand_whole>

rather than for making maps.

Recently Mapzen ecosystem looked interesting for me (though 

making maps good from cartographic design viewpoint was not one of

its strength), but I picked poor moment to start with Mapzen :)
