Does someone want to talk about how Openstreetmap and OSGeo can work in 
harmony with each other.

They basically won't talk until we have all the features they do.  Which
is somewhat reasonable, so we're working on that, but I'm not incredibly
optimistic that they'll just jump over - even if we match their existing
feature set and do more (diffs, rollbacks, commit comments are all
basically done in our postgis datastore).  If you want to read a thread
that is pretty typical (I think) of discussions on OSM about PostGIS and
WFS-T and the like, see:

Kristian Thy's email.
