2020/Res21 Ask corporate counsel for advice on latest Local Chapter application changes

I propose to email, and liaise with. Francis Davey, the OSMF's pro-bono corporate counsel, for a (simple?) review of the proposed new Local Chapter agreement (which we hope to sign with OSMUS). If this proposal/CR passes, I (Rory) will liaise with them.

Licence for standard style tiles

LWG recommends to the board that we license the osm.org "standard" style tiles on ODbL 1.0 "Produced Work" terms, dropping the historic CC BY-SA 2.0 licence.

Past related LWG (if not stated) and board minutes:

Tobias

Microgrants update

The call for microgrant applications has closed, and the 49 proposals are on the OSM wiki.

Background:
Providing microgrants was a topic discussed extensively during the 2018 Face-to-Face board meeting, where a plan was developed. You might know similar programs from e.g. OSM-US, HOT or FOSSGIS. As a start and as a first trial we want to make a time-bound program where you can apply for microgrants until a specific date. A consultation document was shared in 2018 with the membership and the Advisory Board members, which contained an outline and top questions. There were also two microgrant-related sessions at the State of the Map 2018 conference (read some discussion points and questions).

Work on Microgrants was paused in 2018 and restarted after the 2019 F2F meeting.

Small change to the process of the active contributor membership program

Background: If you are an active contributor to the OpenStreetMap project, you should be able to vote for the benefit of the project. The membership fee should not be a barrier. The Membership Working Group is implementing the active contributor membership program, which is replacing the old program, where the membership fee was waived in cases of financial hardship or lack of suitable money transfer ability.

Related board discussions:

Advisory Board - monthly update

The Advisory Board members are separate from the OSMF board of directors - individuals are 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 members. This monthly section is reserved for this purpose. Overview.
