Some of you might know about OpenStreetMap (http://www.openstreetmap.org/), there is also another OSM-related project: transiki. Transiki binds the geographical information to public transport timetables. But transiki is still in pre-alpha fase.

Today, the founder of transiki, Steve Coast mailed the OSM mailing list that to ask help in develloping. Since there are more devs on the ubuntu forums than on the OSM mailing list, I thought posting his call here would help.

Transiki (http://www.transiki.org/) is like OSM but stores magical transit data. It's approximately, nearly, at 0.1. It looks and feels very similar to OSM internally. It's written in rails, it's API looks similar and so on. You can think of it as a baby OSM.

I'm a little overwhelmed and haven't had the time to review patches sent in, update the site etc.

So, if you are a rails person or want to be and have a couple of hours please have a look at transiki. Anyone contributing will be sent an I Love You bean.
