Indeed: and Ian, Andy and I have this afternoon briefly discussed making
this available on a server so it can be pulled through into OSM by mappers.

I've also done some work today on getting Potlatch 2 to load _big_
shapefiles, and tested it on the 55Mb shapefile for LA County. It's not
fast, but it works. This too provides a really easy way to get the latest
TIGER data into OSM, and once the new version is deployed I'll post some
instructions here.

Depends whether you visit LA I guess ;) , but assuming you do, let's roll up
our sleeves and fix it. I don't think that one self-proclaimed viking
deciding not to agree to the new licence completely damns OSM!

cheers
