no one said it is trivial, or it would be over by now.
but some of us try more positive alternatives than "sitting
down and doing nothing because it's impossible".
maybe it will succeed, maybe it will only be 1/10th of what
is hoped for, maybe it will not succeed.

with this in mind 20k€/year for storage is one to explore.
distributed storage, too.

I don't care about SLA. Does OSM have SLA?
No, we're doing the best we can.

today, it is easy to make a map for your own photo storage.
it's also possible to make a thematic instance for a local community.
it's possible and easy to feed it from your mapillary account.
it's already not so bad!

i don't remember osm starting with a 100k£ call before the first test.
thanks to the precursors for not being aware that it's not a hobby pet
project someone is running from his/her basement.
