pointless for ?

1) in charge of initiating a big installation, I spent N000 euros
- to earn 4 hours in the init process by server
- to get the initial prevision of 44 masters  reduced to 12
- to get turn-key sub products to run tiles servers on very small slave 

It was a great help for a few bucks and finally, I saved a lot of money

0) it would not be only one serious product in the osm catalog without the 
private donations of a very few enterprises and individuals. I respect what 
they did and I hope a lot for their revenus.
