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 :)
