At the moment the current version of the Out-of-copyright background layer uses the new NPE maps from, but this does not cover a lot of Scotland (just shows up as black tiles). Is is possible to have another option available that uses the old version, as this seems to contain tiles for Scotland (found this out by playing around with Josm).

The Scotland tiles are not available in the 900913 (spherical Mercator) tile format that Potlatch requires. They are only available via WMS, or as OSGB tiles, neither of which Potlatch supports.

I believe work is underway on putting the 7th Series for Scotland online, which will provide more up-to-date out-of-copyright mapping of Scotland in a format Potlatch can understand.
