Did you try fetching a new version of that file?

Yes. If rendered with a small python program:
http://crite.net/fr/
it is rendered correctly, which shows that
mapnik2 is OK and the data is OK.

So I believe that either
* tirex
* my tirex configuration, e.g. extents or projection
* mapnik C++ bindings (used by tirex)
is broken.

I'd wish I had a small C++ test rendering program
which would let me verify item 3.

Kind regards,
Kay

Regular Maintenance at 8. February

Hello all,

the next maintenance will be at 

Wednesday, 8 February between 19:00 and 1:00 UTC.

The roots will collect what they will do at [1] until Sunday night. If you 
have something for us to do (like a software-update) please open a bugreport 
at JIRA and make sure to add the label "maintaince-window" until Sunday noon.

Sincerly,
DaB.

It's now session based.

Those shouldn't be displayed.

Will add it later.

The OSM wikipedia links and interlanguage links are fetched weekly.

I wonder why osm_id and tags don't match in planet_polygon:

osm_mapnik=> SELECT osm_id, name, tags->'wikipedia' AS wikipedia FROM
planet_polygon WHERE osm_id=-1685716;

Because you're querying a rendering-database which is preprocessed in order to prduce good rendering
results ans -times. One of te preprocessing steps taken is, in the polygon-build phase, "if the relation
does not have any interesting tags, copy them from the outer way". This may be wrong or right in the sense of
how Relations are defined (there are different definitions for that, btw.), but it's just how our
impiorter handles it.

Refer to http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Relation:multipolygon#Tagging for one of the definitions.

Re: [Toolserver-l] Regular Maintenance at 8. February

Hello all,

the dumping of commons on rosemary take longer than I thought it would and I 
have to go to bed now. So the replication of the commons-database on rosemary 
will be stoped until tomorrow (Thurday) afternoon/evening (I have an exam 
tomorrow) and the importing of the dump on z-dat-s4-a will be postponed too. 
If Nosy is arround tomorrow morning or noon, she can restart the replication 
too.
If you need just to READ commons, please use the -rr-version of our servers 
[1] and you will have no problems at all.
I am sorry that everything will take longer now, but I can't change it.

Sincerly,
DaB.

Extraordinary hardware-maintenance 16 and 17 February

Hello all,

Nosy and I will visit the datacenter on short-term-base tomorrow and the day 
after, to install the remaining hardware and for some maintenance [1]; this 
will cause downtimes and rebootings between

Thursday: 15-24 o'clock UTC
Friday: 09-22 o'clock UTC.

For normal the reboots will be announced on the shell 5 minutes before they 
happen, but accidents may happen; so please do not open files and leave your 
computer. If you plan to do something that takes some time (like a long 
download), please to it at night-times. If possible, use SGE [2] (you should 
always do that).
We will try to be at IRC (at least from time to time), but we can not 
guarantee that. 

Sincerely,
DaB.

Re: Maps-l Digest, Vol 28, Issue 4

Dear all,

Thanks for your large efforts to allow GIS maps **display** into wikipedia's articles.
There is also an on going efforts to allow GIS maps **edition & storage**  for wikipedia's usage, and so for encyclopedic maps. 

GIS EDITING advancement :
Sharemap.org took the initiative to create a GoogleMap-like for Wikipedia. A system (Sharemap.org) where wiki mapmakers can create, edit, store their encyclopedic maps. This in a centralized GIS way with standardized icons, designed for Wikipedia. Maps such the "Battle of Watterloo", "Birth rate in the US", "Japanese topography", etc will be possible. Translate a map will only involve the translation of the labels layers making translations easier (= more languages) compare to commons. The GIS maps will be downloadable in SVG/JPEG format too. This stage is already largely working.

GIS EDITING need SUPPORT : for inclusion in wikipedia
Secondly, the project wish to allow inclusion of its maps within wikipedia articles. Your knowledge will be appreciate. Languages used being :
1. ActionScript 3 with Flex framework for visual editor
2. Java for site management and map and content repository
3. JavaScript for SVG rendering code
Jakub, the programmer, may tell you more if interested. (I'm a map maker).

GIS EDITING need SUPPORT : to connect to the WM foundation : 
Sharemap.org is also looking for contacts, programmers, scholarships to solidify or actively support this project and associate it with the wikimedia foundation. 
The project is opensource (CC-BY-SA 3.0), willfully a wikipedia friendly license.

Please, who is interested for more information ? Who may I contact for further collaboration with Wikipedia/Media ?

Best wishes !

You are requiring Flash and Java support?
You won't get much support for embedding that into Wikipedia (specially
Flash, does it at least work with eg. Gnash?).
