Haven't seen in mentioned on the OSM lists yet, but there's a nice mention of 
OpenStreetMap in the article "Municipalities open their GIS systems to citizens" on 
the Linux.com website:



Municipalities open their GIS systems to citizens
By Marco Fioretti on December 30, 2008 (2:00:00 PM)

Many public administrations already use open source Geographic Information Systems 
(GIS) to let citizens look at public geographic data trough dedicated Web sites. 
Others use the same software to partially open the data gathering process: they let 
citizens directly add geographic information to the official, high-quality GIS 
databases by drawing or clicking on digital maps.
