[osgeo4w-dev] Mapnik in osgeo4w

I didn't know about existing tickets but that's the reason I'm popping
up here :)

#218 looks like exactly what I'll be working on, albeit not
specifically for osgeo4w; but I'd be happy to work with you to fix
this. Are you the mapnik maintainer for osgeo4w? How does it work in
general, are there specific people responsible for specific packages,
or is it one for all and all for one?

In the mapnik trac itself, there are #122 and #410 that seem related;
is anyone here affiliated with those?

I saw your mail to the mapnik mailing list back then, I'll look into
this; part of my work will be on making the api consistent, including
across bindings.

A more general question: do the osgeo4w packages focus on cygwin/mingw
or Visual Studio builds, too? Is there an introduction I can read for
devs to get up to speed, apart from the trac wiki
