That comment was directed at the suggestions that the forum could start its own map database and maybe create its own nav software.
justchat: How are we re-inventing the wheel? There isn't any open source software out there which can take automatically collected tracks and turn them into OSM map data. There are proprietary programs to do this, but nothing open source. I thought the purpose of this was to help OSM out by creating OSM ready maps without all the extra effort and hassle? Did I misunderstand?
