This is really hard though, because a major part of our reason to run this instance is to provide a low barrier of entry to joining.

As in time is limited and there is way too much interesting stuff, so there is a pretty harshly managed priority queue involved.

I'll have a look at joining properly, but see also #4
@liw

@zacchiro
Please view it as constructive feedback how someone with resources (free bandwidth and hosting, plenty of old servers available) view a project that we might or pick up.

The first things are, in rough order:

1) Is it interesting? (fun? beneficial [to us or world]?)

2) Are they interested?

3) Is a useful contribution possible with our hardware? (no SSDs or latest CPUs)

4) Is it a reasonable amount of work for the benefit?
@liw

@liw
Yeah, this I take at first glance as no mirrors needed or wanted. Rough hardware requirements for a useful contribution would make me think there is interest in adding mirrors.
@zacchiro

@zacchiro
Yeah, and my primary question is if the project feels it has enough mirrors, or how badly more are needed.
@liw

@zacchiro
Hmm. Are full mirrors needed? Also, have you considered cvmfs as an access method for mountable access to the archives? (Sorry
@liw for hijacking, will drop you for next reply if you're not interested)

@ij @joeyh In a joy of anti-IPv6 adoption, Google applies different standards for IPv6 and IPv4 mail servers, in particular SPF records are "mandatory" on v6. Wouldn't be surprised if there were more strange requirements.

@ij
Yeah, we'll see when that happens. I have a feeling that a fair bit of the size is age and not number of users related too. But no proper data to back it up.

@ij Haven't really looked at it since the filesystem is just half full, and it'd be easy to add more space if needed.

Interesting distribution of bandwidth usage for official #openstreetmap tiles.
People in Germany, France and Poland use OSM more than in the USA.
Big countries like Japan, India, China or Iran really don't use OSM that much.
Germany uses as much bandwidth as the "bottom" 200 countries (in terms of OSM usage).

Based on this data from the OSM foundation: git.openstreetmap.org/dns.git/
