The setup involves designing the SQL queries and the initial database,
and tweaking the front end for different types of problems. Up until
now, we have been able to get away with just displaying the
non-remapped way as a vector element on the leaflet map, but for
example forfolding ways that may not be enough, as the folds may be
really tiny and not visible without also displaying the offending
piece of the way in a kind of magnifying glass (or in the popup
balloon). That would mean significant front-end tweaking as well as
partial re-engineering of the webservices that transmit the geojson.
(these are really really simple things[1] so that should not be hard
to do for someone with a little python / json experience). For the
connectivity errors, which are as high on my list as anything to fix,
we'd need to transmit both ways involved and find a way to display the
issue effectively. Maybe just the two ways in different colors. Nice
extra would be if the popup would say 'hey, there are x more
connectivity errors within a mile, do you just want to go ahead and
edit all of them?'

A wiki page is an excellent idea, who has time to set that up?
