I feel really silly for having missed this thread earlier. It's a 
corker, with a real live BAN POTLATCH!!! and everything.


People who'd like to test osm2go out on the desktop (and, ahem, like to 
build things from source, and are running a recent Debian-based system) 
might like to try out:

   svn co https://garage.maemo.org/svn/osm2go/branches/ports/debian

Working on freedesktop and Debian menu integration right now, though any 
feedback and patches at all will be gratefully accepted.

The target environment is going to be - initially - small-screened 
netbook machines like EeePCs. I'll be syncing from trunk and integrating 
my changes back regularly too, so that ought to keep some of the desktop 
bloat some people have feared out of the core program.

I'll upload some binary packages for common Debian-style systems later 
this week, once I've sorted out a package build script that works with 
our svn conventions. Apologies for the delay here.
