[Mapbender_dev] More demos... and what to do about our default WMS?

it would be interesting to set up a more complex WMS - maybe with OSM data.

If the FOSSGIS server could be used for this purpose this is fine. As I
know the server is in germany and quite fast. The address should be
available for the next years.

An alternative would be to set a the WMS on the new Mapbender server when
we get it. It could be a ticket for Mapbender 3.0 to make use of the new
WMS and maybe to move and update the germany WMS on the new server.

Best regards
