We did some more work in last two weeks on tooling for generating GTFS
feeds based on crowdsourced data: mapping with GPS devices + editing OSM
+ manual entry of timetable information into spreadsheets. Please expect
proper announcement with links in next days!

We consider naming it in a similar way to FixMyStreet - MapOurTransit, I
wonder how do you see use of Transit / Transport terminology?

GTFS uses General *Transit* Feed Specification, also *Transit*
Developers group[2]. Then *Transportation* Camp and of course this Open
*Transport* WG.

I don't see it as a big deal, still would appreciate your feedback which
we would take into account in terminology which we use in that project.

Thank you :)
