I am the docent for Brooklyn, so if you have any questions please leave them here:
The fact that you can't see the most recent edits on the pub is probably not so related to our current technical difficulties. We have for a long time had page caching issues, which you can almost always resolve by just refreshing your browser window. Occasionally I find you have to purge the page cache and then refresh your window again. You can purge the page cache via a link at the very bottom of the edit window. --Peter Talk 17:04, 18 November 2009 (EST)

I checked with Jani, and it looks like that process isn't maintained anymore. I would encourage you to look at Wikitravel:How_to_create_a_map#SVG imports from OSM (which is now inappropriately named, since I'm using it regularly in Linux...). It's a fair degree easier than you would expect, especially once you have already cut your teeth on one. Maybe try exporting an OSM SVG of just a small portion of downtown Riga, and then converting that in Inkscape to the standard Wikitravel color scheme?
We're sorry to see you go, especially to a clone with no visitors outside of the few WM users themselves. Your contributions here are much appreciated, by your fellow Wikitravellers and by the admin crew. Best of luck to you, and your account will be here for you when you return.
