Accepting Liberapay Donations
Liberapay is a non-profit microdonation provider that allows its users to recurrently donate money to projects and people (like Flattr). It seems that they have scraped all organisations from Github and are now soliciting donations for them. People using Liberapay can indicate that they want to recurrently donate to an organisation - however they are not charged, until the organisation signs up. The OpenStreetMap Foundation has not signed up. Liberapay has emailed the board, stating that there are people using their platform that want to recurrently donate to the OSMF.
General Data Protection Regulation
OSMF Data Center
A Request for Proposals to provision space in a data centre to continue to run the OpenStreetMap project's infrastructure will be circulated soon. Hosting is mainly supported by Imperial College, University College London and Bytemark - of the 3 data centers, the IC one has been our primary data center for many years. IC currently wants to reclaim the space for offices so the Operations Working Group (OWG) has drafted an RFP document that was shared with the board.
The proposed Request for Proposals sets out the requirements for a new data centre, and should ensure that we have the space, power, cooling and access we need to keep the site running. It also makes sure we have a well-documented, fair process which will result in a formal relationship with the new provider. If finding a new provider turns unsuccessful, alternatives have been proposed by the OWG.

Advisory Board - monthly update
|The Advisory Board (AB) is an entity separate from the OSMF board of directors, composed of individuals - either nominated by corporate members of the OSMF or invited directly by the OSMF board of directors. The OSMF Board of Directors will publicly minute, in the board meeting minutes, any communication sent to, or received from, the AB. This monthly section is reserved for this purpose. |
