The last winter I work for implement an a VM that support all the  
service of OSM Servers . So I followed the istruction on wiki and  
produce an a VM that support API , mapnik renders and standard Ruby on  
Rails Website.

But the problem is not that If I can or not develop a fork of OSM  
server. The problem is that now all the entusiastic User are promote www.openstreetmap.org 
  website , promote the use of Josm and Potlatch and promote api that  
use directly the main server of openstreetmap . So OSM is not a small  
project only for a small  community user , but We propose OSM as  
alternative to GMAP for the application ...
The idea is that if there're some resource for OSM server Clone around  
the world is better to have only one approch to develop one strategy  
for support a large and growing user community , and for supporting  
fault tollerant approach.

The down for 48 hours is bad immage for the project. So I see that  
actualy also google code are in mantenaince , but is not down is in  
readonly mode. Use backup server .
Best Regards
Roberto Navoni
