we need a coordinated way to manage the rendering as well

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.

geohash or something similar to easily select the area.

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.
