Database rebuild strategy
- “Switchover” model: “Bing bang” with db off-line and have a clean-up of the database during the weekend of April 1st.
- “Gradual change” model proposed by Dermot in this post: Having a script going through the database and delete stuff while db is online area by area. Matt is in favour.
After a discussion, the meeting was in favour of the “Gradual Change” strategy. Starting with the least tainted regions in the beginning of March.
Would a hack weekend help, perhaps in March?
Funding for flights for the main hackers?
Harry will talk about organising a hack event on the rebuild call tomorrow
The rebuild procedure will be synched with the visualisation tools present (http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/WTFE) in order to help the community with remapping. Matt and Frederik will compare notes.
Meeting ended 17:04 GMT
