we need to have a scheduling system for coordinating rendering of tiles. Some People will want to render some parts immediately to fix problems and see the results asap. others will have computers to donate off hours. Others will have old computers to use. others will rent cloud computers for dedicated rendering. Some will want to render only their own town. all these need to be considered.
People will want to import georss feeds into the system and also produce edits as georss.
People will want to post changesets and blogposts with annotations and pictures. they will want to render tiles and show what they have edited. They will want to store the OSM change data in the blogpost and not have to store it in some central server.
we should raise money for hackathons and prizes for implementing these ideas that we find valuable.
we want to subscribe to peoples edits via georss and have them rendered on top of other maps.
the changesets basic data could be broadcast in an irc channel with a special syntax to describe what area is affected, what the contents are, what conflicts occur and a link to the data. this could be subscribed by simple filtering on the channel.
we can use geohashs to split and sort the data for easy selection. If the osm data is split into a directory structure based on its geohash then it would be easier to select data based on its location without a database server needed. such a split dataset could be hosted on a simple ftp file server.
the community should vote on a member to send to the OSMF board, this person would be rotated once in a while.

the Code-Point Open is a postal geography dataset that features a set of geographically referenced points that represent each of the 1.7 million postcode units in Great Britain. The centre of the postcode unit is derived from the precise coordinates of addresses sharing the same postcode unit in Ordnance Survey’s large-scale address database.

Geonames should be made available as its own separate layer that is maintained in osm but as its own separate layer and updated on a regular basis
the GNS layer http://earth-info.nga.mil/gns/html/ should be added as its own layer and made available. all changes to it should be tracked and conflicts merged/managed when new updates come in.
