Hi Wolf,

I thought I better move this discussion to the SoC mailing list.

Well, I just realized that there is not really much time left for the

>From the pgRouting project Anton Patrushev and I are willing to mentor.
I checked the steps on the OSGeo wiki page and saw that Steve already
added OpenGeocoder ideas.

My question is how to proceed now.
Steve, may I just clone your OpenGeocoder page and create a similar one
for OpenRouter?
Do we want to discuss our ideas on the RouterGeocoder list before we add
them to the wiki page. Maybe there is not enough time anymore for a long

In addition to Steve's ideas I thought about
- Implement a bi-directional shortest path algorithm
- Improve the Traveling Salesperson (make it possible to return to the
start point)
- Improve the OpenStreetMap data import tool (or even other data sources)
- Add support for time constraints
- Network layering support might be too difficult

My Melange Link ID is "dkastl".
