Hi Luca and Marco,

Thank you both for volunteering for this task.

The current OSM setup is based on the following installers:

1. https://github.com/OSGeo/OSGeoLive/blob/master/bin/install_mapnik.sh

Here we need to drop Tilelite and replace it with either Tilestache or 
apache mod_tile.
Both of them are already in our ppa:

Input from Bas regarding which to use:
Feel free to add your suggestions.

2. https://github.com/OSGeo/OSGeoLive/blob/master/bin/install_osm.sh

Here we need at least to make sure we update the featured city to be 
Bonn. More suggestions/comments/pull requests are welcome :)

3. https://github.com/OSGeo/OSGeoLive/blob/master/bin/load_postgis.sh#L96

Here we import data to PostGIS since they have already been downloaded 
from install_osm.sh.

Hope the above help.
