[mkgmap-dev] Sea generation

From WanMil wmgcnfg at web.de on Thu Nov 18 18:28:20 GMT 2010

I have created a new branch "coast".
As a first step I have committed a new option --coastlinefile that 
allows to define one or more osm files containing coastlines.

I don't know what I have to do to publish the branch build to the 
webpage. Steve? Can you help?
