As a new year's present, the MapOSMatic team is proud to announce that
a new version of the website has been put online, with
major improvements over the initial version announced in September 2009.


first of all, it's great to see the development and progress of MapOSMatic. I had a look at the new features released today and already discussed some of the following issues in the project's IRC channel. But to make them available to a wider audience I repost them here. I also tried to post to your dev mailing list, but it was not reachable from here and simply posting to address@hidden didn't work.

First, I've spotted a missing space character in the german translation and also a complete paragraph missing translation. I then cloned the git repository, fixed the missing space and saw that the translation that is missing online, is available in the source file. However I was not able to push my changes online again. Please consider switching to a popular and widely used git network like Github. That would make collaboration a lot easier and we had great results using Github for walking-papers for the translations and more. The push and pull system there allows everyone to contribute while still maintaining a stable version of the website. I'm sure you could attract a lot more translators and code contributors there as well.

Anyway, the missing space char is in django.po in the .de directory in line 299, it should look this way when fixed: 

"Dieser Webservice wurde <i>MapOSMatic</i> genannt,\n"

Another issue I found is the usage of boundary relations. According to the IRC you're only using admin_level=8 relations. As you can read in the OSM wiki [1] in Germany we also use admin_level=6 for larger cities such as Munich or Berlin... Currently searching for them in MapOSMatic doesn't give you a working result. I suggest you to expand your system so it firstly searches for admin_level=8 relations and in case of no success continues to search for admin_level=6.
