Hi folks, happy new year to all of you,
Xavier is on vacations, I'll forward your messages. Merging the two plugins
is a good idea, in fact Xavier coded his plugin and discovered the other one
after when I asked him to rename it from Nominatim to a more user explicit
name. We had done a private plugin using our postgis ressources to locate
places, and Xavier wanted to make a public version of it, using Nominatim.
speaking of functionnal needs,  we have several other "place search"
services we wish to use, like french geoportal's one (requiring a key),
google's one. If porting it to core, we should allow users to choose which
location service they want to use, with specific parameters.. If not, we
will fork another plugin.. killing the advantage of having a core plugin.. 

Early 2014 will be a very busy period for us, I'm not sure we can invest a
lot on the plugin, and will still have  some others to upgrade , like
EaysCutomLabeling for instance. 

I'll let you know next week.
