Thank you for these pointers, Richard.  I am checking out (well, not 
literally "checking out" as in "I'm going to hack on it" but rather 
"observing") the code now.

I did not know there is also a rebuild@ list, and while I know about 
#osm-dev on IRC, I have never visited or chatted/lurked there.  (I 
may not be alone on either of those, either).

Now, when and how will this bot run?  Over the entire planet.osm?  In 
something like one-degree of latitude at a time swaths?  (That's just 
a guess).  Can you sense my frustration when I feel like I should be 
able to "just go and find these things out" (maybe in a big, 
all-encompassing "License Change -- what you need to know, do and not 
do" wiki page), but it really does appear to be a challenge?

My grade this week for "internal OSM communication" (amongst members 
who both know and want to know):  Better!

Thank you for these answers.  I am finding that talk-us really can 
and does work (though it is a bit klunky, and even so, I'll take it).
