I think the best place for the maps bugs is the maps-l list. (if no one

I'm wondering if any thought has been given to rendering maps to SVG. I'm asking
that especially in the light of
<http://techblog.wikimedia.org/2009/07/svg-for-all-with-flash/> which might give
use in-browser display of SVG, and perhaps even interactive SVG. Using that with
OSM would be really cool!
Now, afaik Mapnik supports SVG rendering. But I suspect that interactive vector
maps would work differently from interactive pixel-based maps: you could scale
smoothly, could use much bigger tiles, and would use level-of-detail layers
instead of pre-scaled tiles...
Does somethign like that exist yet?

Basically someone else than me who has time and know how (which I
don't really have:) needs to take care of it.
I'll be away from the internet for most of August so if another admin
isn't found the box will be crippled for the near future.
Here's an update on the server status from Daniel, looks like we won't
be able to do anything with the servers until the end of the month.
Cassini (the osm-toolserver) is also down for what looks like until
the end of the month.
I'll be afk for almost all of august leading up to Wikimania so I the
things I need before that time I'm just going to set up on my own
somewhat more limited colo server.

Jens just told me that we'll have to wait some more until the OSM boxes are up.
There is currently no console access, so Jens can't set up the OS. This will
have to wait until Mark is back, it seems. Mark is graduating, so we only have
someone for emergencies at the colo. Any hardware setup has to wait until he is
back, which will be at the end of july.
perhaps a stupid question but how we want to organise the tools from
developers on cassini?
If I understand it right we have the same home-directory than in the
rest of the cluster.
So if I have a tool in my home/public_html it should run on
But this doesn't work in the moment. I tested it with my existing
scripts. So where should a developer save the scripts?
Alternative we should support projects with more than one developer like
we do on stable server, but it should be as
simple as possible.
So what is the plan?

For more users on the machine perhaps we should write a new message on
the different mailing lists
that it now starts. The last message from us was at the beginning of april.
I can post to the german OSM list and can contact some people directly
which are geo interested. Some of them have a already a toolserver account.
Perhaps somebody else can post to the english list.
On jira is no OSM-Toolserver account request pending ,. That's the
start point, than I can support the admins to decide about such a request.
Also if we have no database-server in the moment it could be only good
for the setup of cassini if we know what people wants to do.
