Who could decide on this, SWG? The board? Is there a process to propose this?


We have a world-wide OSM routing solution at Mapquest that should be easy to implement on the main site.  http://developer.mapquest.com/web/products/open/directions-service
Currently, we update the route data nightly using the latest daily at http://planet.openstreetmap.org/replication/day/000/000/  Also, every so often we do wipe the database and ingest the latest planet and then catch up to the latest daily.  I would love to see routing on the main site.
