You asked about the svn. At the moment we commit the new or changed code 
   only to the mapbender trunk and don't offer a testbed.

I think it's a good idea to setup a testarea where new code can be 
presented to the community. But I don't know, how this can be organized 
in the svn.

I would appreciate it if more people become part of the developer team 
and get contributors. I could make a proposal to add you to the 
developer team.

Another question we discussed about at the FOSSGIS 2006 was: Where can 
we leave code which is not generic or assume a special database or 
architecture or is not following the standars, but maybe is nice to have 
(some examples poi-search [needs configuration and geodata in a 
postgresql database], str/hsnr-search implemented on postgresql ...). It 
would be nice to have a branch where this code could be left.

Let's discuss about it


Greetings Astrid
