Is anyone doing any work on this project? It's designed to opensource map everywhere. Basically you grab a GPS, wander around the streets in your town or city, then upload the streets to openmap. That makes the maps opensource so we can all use them.

I'm considering doing a few towns in this area.

I think they should try and make some news out of this, like 'worldwide openmap day' where the entire family walks or bikes around with their GPS to map their neighbourhood.
