as you all probably know, the osm_mapnik database is not being updated
anymore since a while. About two months ago the database seems to have
become corrupted, which in turn has unfortunately prevented diffs from
In order to get things up-to-date again and working more smoothly than
before, the database needs to be freshly imported. During this re-import
period the database will not be available for use.
As a full import will likely take several days plus an additional couple
of days for the diffs to catch up, there will unfortunately be a bit of
an extended downtime for the database. During this time postgresql will
likely be updated and I would also like to use it to see if the database
can be optimized further to give better performance than before.
To try and minimize disruption, I would like to ask who, or which tools,
are currently using the osm_mapnik database? Is the downtime going to be
an issue for anyone?
In return, we will hopefully have an up-to-date database again that can
be kept up-to-date.
