Hi Mikel,
Jeff and I worked on this a while ago: http://learnosm.org/en/osm-data/
that could be revamped and enhanced. There is also at least one new QGIS
plugin to get OSM data. I have not tried it yet but it would be nice to
integrate if it works well as the current default one has some issues. It
would also be nice later on to include also Geogig as this is how the
snapshots were maintained on the GeoNode for Yolanda.
I would definitely be interested in the replication topic as it comes up
