I was asked more then one time now, if the map-styles
rendered on the
toolserver are opensource and where to get them. I was not able to
answer those questions definitely.
FWIW, I maintain the hikebike and lighting styles here right now:
and the license is PD.
To get this cleared I'd suggest the following:
All styles hosted on ptolemy will get copied into the osm project's home
dir and published into its svn repository . This way we have control
over style changes and have a known location to check for the sources.
Having control over style modifications is a good thing in our shared
environment, because that way we'll know why tirex won't start after a
I would move from the mapnik-utils repository to the toolserver if
people agree this is a good thing to do (I think it is, yes).
The "control over style modifications" part slightly more complicated
for the hikebike (and lighting) style since you'd need to run
Cascadenik to get the XML format usable for Mapnik, then post-process
it a bit. I should make this push-button at some point...
Maybe we can just commit a known-good generated XML file to a special
"ready to be deployed" directory, from which it gets pulled into a
working copy for tirex (via an SVN hook) or something - even if you
normally do not put generated files under version control.
