[Scummvm-devel] Developers Bios Map

Hey Matt/Guys,

that's funny: I noticed the same just yesterday, haven't looked at the
automatically generated
images in ages. I think something goes wrong during the page parsing phase,
I'll take a look
at it later this week.

That said, there's no reason to not use this data to create a Google Map as
well. If interested,
I could pass you the Perl code (or was it shell script, I don't remember :P)
that parses the wiki
page and creates the xplanet data markers, if you are interested. If you
want I could also run
that script on the same server as a cron job, to update the map with new
coordinates people
might add to the wiki page.
