Use OSM maps for user pages

Registered by Bruce Cowan on 2009-01-03

Saying as Launchpad is supposed to be promoting Free Software, using Google Maps seems a bit wrong. It would make more sense to use OpenStreetMap and OpenLayers.

OSM offers better integration than Google Maps. Unittests can be written for OSM unlike Google Maps. Nor does OSM require costly licenses to run under HTTPS. In short, Google Maps cannot be proven to run in Launchpad, and there are security warnings on every page when running the site in development mode
