I just embedded openstreetbugs in a website for the Birmingham finish.
It works very well and the javascript code is quite self-contained and
should be easily embedable in other websites as well. I am currently
talking to Xav (the inventor of osb) about this. He said that he does
not mind copying and modifing his code. Since I do not mind either, the
clientside code is available
(http://www.mappa-mercia.org/scripts/map.js to be exactly. There is
some other stuff at the top of the file but not much).

So, the clientside code is available and almost ready. On the server
side there is not much to be done. Its basically filing new bugs in a
table, retrieving bugs within a bounding box from this table and adding
comments into a second table. However, this code is not written yet (if
I would only be a better Ruby programmer ...).
