There hasn't, but I would be in to the idea of OSGeo data projects.
We're starting to work on a New York map, and relatively soon we want to
make the base layer editable.
I think similar to the coding projects you'd want a strong community of
people, a number of different contributors, ect. One of the tough thing
will be the legal requirements, since the whole data thing is not on
firm legal ground.
