Many thanx for the comment, you humble us. Hope we can keep up to the

We have not yet implemented a generic color picker, width selecion, etc.
We believe that it will depend heavily on the semantics of the data.
We'll continue this thread on the Mapbender user list, if you don't mind.

The companies CCGIS, terrestris, KARTA.GO, M&G Ingenieure, the data
center KRZ Minden-Ravensberg/Lippe, and the on and off freelance
programmer. It is beeing *used* by some of the larger proprietary GIS
companies to test and integrate their services together with competitors
as it is vendor independent. Unexplicably there has been no return flow
on that one though...
It boils down to three core developers and 6 working part time on
extensions, two people working part time on the docs and tutorials, two
admins straightening all the many services and helping with
installations around it here in Germany. I don't know about any
international developers, except one guy in Australia, therefore a lot
of internal disussion is still going on in German. This shouldn't
prevent anybody from joining in, we also talk some English.
There are around 50 customers worldwide that I know of who largely just
use the software. The old version 1.4 has been translated to 6 languages
including a Chinese interface.
