diese Nachricht ging an talk. Ich möchte nicht nochmal alles übersetzen, 
deshalb ist der Rest meiner Nachricht auf Englisch.

After having some trouble with the precision and number of bugs returned by 
OpenStreetBugs [1] I contacted the author (Xav). He agreed that it needed to 
be rewritten. I already tried some code which was used for testing purposes 
only [2].
I continued developing that code in a public repository. I also added scripts 
to dump the Appspot database (based on Xav's dump method).

The new service is now running on a sponsored test server [3]. Appspot data is 
imported once a day. I also sent a patch to Xav to proxy the new database on 
Appspot for a smooth transition to the new service.

I hope that this patch will be applied soon. Xavier was afraid of Javascript 
slowness now where each request returns 100 bugs. Can anyone confirm that this 
is a problem? This number could still be changed.

I think it would be nice if the service was using the domain 
openstreetbugs.org (easy to remember).
Currently it is available at http://openstreetbugs.schokokeks.org/

If you like to use the service in JOSM you can change the settings from 
http://openstreetbugs.appspot.com/* to 

You find some statistics, daily database dumps and various links at the "more" 
link on the new website. Some details are also documented in the wiki [4].

One last thing: my goal was to get better query results and more access to the 
data. I do not intend to spend a lot of time on developing this service. You 
are always welcome to send patches, maybe it is also possible to share access 
to the repository. And in the worst case: forking is easy.

I hope you enjoy the new OpenStreetBugs!
