i'm searching for explanations for all these special words used here, for example 'mapnik' or 'osmarender'. do you have a glossary or something like that?

Going to wiki.openstreetmap.org and typing the desired word in the search window is as close as you get to a glossary, and it works quite well, leading you to e.g. Mapnik ("Mapnik is the software we use to render the main Slippy Map layer for OSM...") and Osmarender ("Osmarender is a rule-based rendering tool for generating SVG images of OSM data.").
