Description Łukasz Stelmach 2009-07-25 13:11:25 UTC
This package provides only data and no code. The meaning of its "unstability" is somehow unclear.

Reproducible: Always

Open Data Commons Open Database License (ODbL)

Since 12 September 2012, OpenStreetMap data has been licensed under the Open Database License (ODbL) (attached).

I believe this would apply to the three datasets downloadable from

The two datasets downloaded from are public domain. I'm not sure if that means the ebuild should be split or not.

I put together an ebuild for my own use which grabs all five data files. I added the dbcl license and also public-domain but as I said, it may need to be split into two ebuilds. (Im not sure on the policy here and the gentoo developer guide didnt specify)

I also updated the homepage url to point to the mapnik wiki page and moved the files to where (I believe) mapnik is expecting them (/usr/share/mapnik doesnt exist on my mapnik-2.1 installation, and I havnt got the rest of the system built yet to test it)
