Mailing Lists Talks
UUID (Universally Unique Identifier) ( on talk@ and tagging@)
Proposal to have the ability to put an ID on objects which would stay invariable whatever you do with it. So you could have something to point at instead of node id's which can change easily.
Also ideas on having barcodes or QR-codes and if it could help in situations like the earthquake in Haiti.
On the topic of Haiti: a fundraiser was mentioned on the list: http://hot.openstreetmap.org/weblog/?page_id=13

Osmose: quality insurance tool (talk@)
Analyses map data for common errors. Updated daily.
Planet file now over 10 GB (talk@)

Custom rendering of a small map
(with a tool other than the usual renderers like Mapnik or OSMarender)
http://maperitive.net/ was mentioned in this discussion
Tagging proposals (tagging@)
Redirected to storage tank proposal: Proposed_features/storage_tank
Garden specification (voting)
Motorcycle repair (proposed on list but put in wiki as approved)
