Instead of the traditional layers, OSM chooses to use a single layer and then tags (key/value pairs) on individual objects. Unfortunately, this creates an incentive to keep the project small and limited in scope to map up the gap with commercial services which they can sell. I'm a long time contributing user of this service so I think Basecamp has changed it's code and broken our installer. The Wikipedia Foundation is a multi-million dollar organization that not only manages Wikipedia but other projects as well, such as the lesser known Wikidata and Wikinews. But since OpenStreetMap requires every edit be committed by an individual user, rather than a company or bot account, the barrier of entry for casual mappers was often too high. While there have been Nominatim maintainers, it's not been given the time or attention that it needs and deserves. Please check the name and try again. Bots could be very useful in OSM in finding mistakes caused either by inaccurate data sources or by editing blunders. If the project instead required that a human review edits before being committed to the system, bad imports could be detected before they cause problems.
