Apparently he just has code to turn it into .osm files. Here: https://github.com/derickr/osm-tools/tree/master/musical-chairs-to-garmin

Conversion to gpx wouldn't be a difficult hack. Good beginner project.

Ahoy there James,

I do produce a gzipped csv of the results (http://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/OS_Locator_Musical_Chairs#Can_I_have_a_dump_of_the_data.3F) which I know Derick Rethans (http://www.openstreetmap.org/user/Derick%20Rethans) for one uses to produce something like a GPX for his Garmin. Knowing him he has some php script for doing it.

No harm in starting small.

Don't worry too much about the "specifications" on the wiki - a lot of the time that stuff is wishful thinking by a bunch of anally retentive wikifiddlers.

5 dreams/ proposals for OSM headquarters (please comment) 6 months ago

Remember, Tomasz, that a lot of things (most things that aren't to do with actually editing maps) on osm.org are essentially a "demo". If "employers need changes", they are free to implement themselves and make them part of their services. OSM itself doesn't have (and almost certainly never will have) the capacity to be a true google-maps-alike.

If an "employer" finds e.g. the default mapnik style to be inhibiting them, it's probably a sign that they've been piggybacking on the (nonprofit) OSM infrastructure for providing their services for too long.

Interesting thing is that it is actually topologically correct.

That's a good idea - I might add that tile option when I get round to it.
