Hi Martin,

This looks like a very impressive endeavor. I will give it a try 
shortly. While browsing through some of the code on github, I noticed a 
few things:

1. you reference to installing it say to edit conf/main.php but it is 
not in github so it is a little hard to edit it.

2. it may have missed it, but I did not see any documentation. Since 
this is a new project your focus has probably been getting it ready for 
release. I hope you will have some time to put together some basic 
documentation, like installation, configuration, what are the major 
modules, how do they communicate, etc.

3. With MapServer 6.2, you also have TinyOWS WFS-t and mapcache all in 
one package which might simplify installation and configuration in the 
future if it was wasy to migrate to or also support these as an option.

Anyway, please take this as suggestions for enhancements, and they 
should not take away from the huge effort that I can see you have 
already put into building this. This is VERY cool!

Thank you and best regards,
