[OSGeo-Discuss] On the subject of tilecache

Dear List,

A while ago I reached out to the tilecache mailing list to try and
understand what's happening with the project. The company that I work for
has a few minor fixes that we would like to contribute back to the main
code, and I also noticed that there are some broken links on the website
(and in the example config) as the metacarta tile server is no longer in
operation, so beginners are going to find it quite tough to set up. A quick
look on github suggests a number of people have forked it and are doing
their own thing, but ideally it would be good to know if the core team are
still doing any work on it, or have any plans to take it forward. Github's
great, but it would also be nice to have a canonical version of the package
that we can all contribute to rather than many versions, all slightly

As I said, I asked this question on the tilecache mailing list and got no
answer, so I thought I'd ask here but if anyone wants to chat about it off
list then please do get in touch.

All the best
