Discussion with sysadmins. Difficult to find a provider with the following four requirements:
  +
* mail server for a domain.
  +
* have aliases and groups.
  +
* webmail.
  +
* imap access.
  +
  +
<u>On webmail</u>

'' Providing microgrants was a topic discussed extensively during the [https://blog.openstreetmap.org/2018/05/29/f2f-board_meeting-2018/ 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 [[Microgrants_Consultation_document|consultation document]] was shared in 2018 with the [https://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/osmf-talk/2018-September/005296.html membership] and the Advisory Board members, which contained an outline and top questions.

<u>Points mentioned during discussion</u>
  +
* Project support would normally be done through the [[Engineering_Working_Group|Engineering Working Group]] (EWG), which is not very active.
  +
* Management should not be done by the board.
  +
  +
<u>Suggestions</u>
  +
* Reanimate EWG and ask it to submit a budget proposal.
  +
* Ask EWG to support community with software projects that the community wants.
  +
  +
<u>On EWG</u>
  +
* Two iterations of the Working Group.
  +
* Not a lot of people involved.

* Might have suffered for not having clarity on purpose.

* Not viewed as a substitute for hiring people to augment our volunteer sysadmins.

* If we have hiring guidelines - the EWG hiring should align with those.

Circular Resolutions

Board_Rules_of_Order#7._Circular_Resolutions

2020/Res25 Approve financial hardship fee waiver 2020051310000099

The Board currently decides on membership applications for a fee waiver due to financial need on a case-by-case basis.

Unanimously accepted on 2020-05-26 with 7 votes in favour: Tobias Knerr, Paul Norman, Rory McCann, Guillaume Rischard, Joost Schouppe, Allan Mustard (I can see a student in [reducted country] as having financial need, and they are an active mapper #comment modified as it contained identifiable information), Mikel Maron.

2020/Res26 Accept the Active Contributor Program as outlined by MWG

The MWG has been working on the framework for implementing the Active Conttributor membership program. This is made possible by a vote during the 2019 AGM. The working group has consulted the community and written down the details of the implementation here. The Board agrees with the MWG further implementing the program as outlined there.

Unanimously accepted on 2020-06-01 with 7 votes in favour: Joost Schouppe, Allan Mustard ("When we recieve an application..." should be spelled "receive"), Paul Norman, Tobias Knerr, Mikel Maron (Would like to see how the 42 mapping days cut off plays out. It seems a bit high to me, but fair enough to give it a try and adjust later if needed), Rory McCann, Guillaume Rischard.

2020/Res27 Adopt LWG recommendation for standard style tile license

Following the recommendation of the LWG, the board decides that map tiles in the "standard" style produced on and provided from OSMF infrastructure are licensed as a ODbL 1.0 Produced Work with no additional terms effective July 1st 2020.

Accepted on 2020-06-02 with 6 votes in favour: Paul Norman, Joost Schouppe, Allan Mustard, Rory McCann, Mikel Maron, Tobias Knerr.
1 not voted: Guillaume Rischard.

2020/Res28 Select Microgrant observers

We received four applications to monitor the Microgrants team. We select Mike Collinson and Craig Allan for the job. They will receive meeting invites by the chair of the Microgrants team and have access to all the docs.

Unanimously accepted on 2020-06-05 with 7 votes in favour: Joost Schouppe, Guillaume Rischard, Mikel Maron, Allan Mustard, Tobias Knerr, Rory McCann, Paul Norman.

2020/Res29 Grant Cesium permission to use our trademark in their product “Cesium OSM Buildings“

Accepted on 2020-06-05 with 4 votes in favour: Guillaume Rischard, Joost Schouppe, Allan Mustard, Rory McCann (I interpret this question as granting them conditional permission to use the “OSM” trademark while the dateset is nearly entirely based on OSM data, they remain a good player in the OSM space, and that the OSMF reserves the right to withdraw this if things change, or with an appropriate notice, and hence vote yes).
1 disagreed: Paul Norman (We should have conditions that their product must remain based on OSM data without adding in other data sources and that we can revoke permission after giving notice).
2 abstained: Tobias Knerr (self-declared conflict of interest), Mikel Maron (self-declared conflict of interest).

2020/Res30 Approve official accounts for 2019

Report of the Directors and unaudited financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2019 for OpenStreetMap Foundation (10 pages, file type: .pdf, file size: 21 KB)

The accounts reflect Michelle's* figures which you all have access to in Xero, without the need for any adjustments, other than moving the corporation tax refund to debtors.

The corporation tax charge for the year of £6,963 is based on the net conference income less scholarship costs. The Profit and Loss account figure of £2,710 includes the adjustment of £4,253 on the previous year’s provision.

The changes in directors have been included, and I guess whichever of us has access to a printer can sign them.

Unanimously accepted on 2020-06-06 with 7 votes in favour: Allan Mustard, Guillaume Rischard, Paul Norman, Joost Schouppe, Rory McCann, Tobias Knerr, Mikel Maron.

* Michelle Heydon (accountant)

2020/Res31 Approve the microgrant finalists proposed by the microgrants committee on June 5, 2020

Proposal attached [1]. This increases the number of projects beyond limit we previously set to 13 [2].

Voting closes on 2020-06-17. Voting was cancelled.

[1] Will be linked after voting has closed or finalists have been notified.
[2] Total of the 13 projects: €47,358

2020/Res32 Approve financial hardship fee waiver 2020061010000048

The Board currently decides on membership applications for a fee waiver due to financial need on a case-by-case basis.

Accepted on 2020-06-17 with 6 votes in favour: Guillaume Rischard, Rory McCann, Joost Schouppe, Tobias Knerr, Mikel Maron, Paul Norman.
1 not voted: Allan Mustard.

Brief updates are noted in the action items table. For longer comments see below.

Guillaume to decide on next steps regarding an email service for OSMF

Guillaume did a complete export. Big amount of data on Google.

Discussion with sysadmins. Difficult to find a provider with the following four requirements:

  • mail server for a domain.
  • have aliases and groups.
  • webmail.
  • imap access.

On webmail

  • Joost uses it but is ok without it.
  • Previous board members required webmail and so might future ones.
  • Also needed by Working Groups.

Treasurer's report

Guillaume
  • Transferwise account: kept an amount for current exprenses and moved the rest to Triodos (our new bank) savings account.
  • Triodos savings account: 0.3% interest/year - 90 days notice to take it out.
  • Triodos: also doing bonds for 0.4% interest but just for one year.
  • Mollie (payment provider) took ages to reply when wanted to configure our new Transferwise account.
    • We have EUR 314.66 there - Trying to take it out.
    • Disabled on CiviCRM, so we can't take any more money there.
    • They only accept only accounts with IBAN registed in company name.
  • Barclays (our old bank): we don't have access to web banking anymore, downloaded last statements.
  • GSoC: Guillaume gave Peter the account needed.

Action items

  • Board to look if Barclays account is referred anywhere.
  • Board to help Guillaume contact people who used the Barclays account number for donations/memberships.
  • Guillaume to send text about updated account to the Board, to be circulated in communication channels.

Publication of pseudonymous membership lists

Suggestion of publishing list of usernames of OSMF members as an additional protection against takeover concerns and to improve transparency in general. Opt-in basis to alleviate privacy concerns.

Related board discussion:

Tobias
  • Blocked by the lack of volunteer willing to implement necessary changes (sign-up process & list publication).
  • Membership Working Group (MWG) doesn't have the capacity.

Action item: Tobias to send a call to community for volunteers.

Microgrants selection

The call for microgrant applications has closed, and the 48 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.

Joost
Motion to name controversial proposal and then proceed to closed portion at end of meeting.
Accepted with 3 votes in favour: Joost Schouppe, Guillaume Rischard, Rory McCann.

2 disagreed: Allan Mustard, Mikel Maron.
2 abstained: Paul Norman, Tobias Knerr.

The controversial proposal was the Maputo 1000km Challenge.

Motion to accept the 12 relatively non controversial proposals sent by microgrants committee. The 13th is left for closed session discussion.
Unanimously accepted.

Points mentioned during discussion

  • The 12 applications weren't entirely uncontroversial.
  • Background of applicants and beneficiaries should be included in future rounds of microgrants applications.
  • Not thrilled to go over 10 applications, as specified in the Microgrants framework # (Comment that for other board member the financial limit is more important).

Microgrants committee and Joost thanked for their work.

Action Item: Joost to send formal email thanking the Microgrants Committee.

Post meeting addition: The 12 selected proposals have been announced.

Recent Corporate Member application

The LWG was asked for input related to the name of a product by a company that applied to be a Corporate Member.
Joost

The LWG has replied to the board.

Point mentioned during discussion:

  • The use of the name on the company's website is providing context - Out of context would be easily confused.

Action Item: Rory to draft email to company to see if they are willing to change the product name.

General issue: How to deal with descriptive uses of our marks in services or software features.

Status of attribution guideline

The board had received a draft attribution guideline by the Licensing Working Group (LWG) and is working on its text.

Attribution related board minutes:

Attribution guidance related LWG minutes:

OSMF members related discussions:

  • Attribution guideline status update: 2019 Aug, Sep, Oct, Nov, Dec
  • Attribution: board letter to Facebook: 2019 Oct, Nov
Paul and Guillaume
  • Paul and Guillaume completed text, sent to LWG.
  • Unsure for timeline for the LWG response. We might in parallel send it for community feedback.
  • Clause 4.3 in ODbL and guidelines looked by lawyer who says it makes sense.

Suggestions

  • Make some effort to have clear communication line with LWG and ensure we don't
  • Have joint meeting with LWG.
  • Ask our pro-bono lawyer to look at the current text.

On asking the Corporate Member representatives on the Advisory Board (AB) if they have legal advice on ODbL and provide it to us
Asked by Rory during AB Corporate Members meeting on 2020-06-22 - didn't receive anything yet.

  • Different views on whether it will yield valuable information.
  • Advice received by companies most likely to be internal communication instead of published brief.

Action Items

  • Rory, Guillaume and Paul to draft email to our pro-bono lawyer.
  • Rory to draft email to our AB Corporate Members for sharing legal advice on ODbL.

Funding for OSM-related projects

Addition of the topic after the agenda got locked was approved by the Secretary.
Guillaume

On Nominatim

  • Sarah Hoffmann (Nominatim dev) is going to freelancing and wants to do consulting on Nominatim.
  • Generally difficult to start and have good, recurring clients.
  • Lots of ideas regarding Nominatim (e.g. multilingual features) and limited time to work on them.
  • Guillaume asked Sarah to send what she is interesting in working on.

Question by Guillaume on whether OSMF would be interested in working with Sarah or other projects if opportunity arises

Points mentioned during discussion

  • Project support would normally be done through the Engineering Working Group (EWG), which is not very active.
  • Management should not be done by the board.

Suggestions

  • Reanimate EWG and ask it to submit a budget proposal.
  • Ask EWG to support community with software projects that the community wants.

On EWG

  • Two iterations of the Working Group.
  • Not a lot of people involved.
  • Might have suffered for not having clarity on purpose.
  • If scope needs expanding, need more people.
  • Not being entirely clear in purpose and what it is solely responsible for.

Discussion of proposal in relation with the overall hiring discussion (requested by Tobias).

Points mentioned during discussion:

  • Proposal could be a substitute for hiring someone to work part/full time on API or website.

Action Item: Membership Working Group (MWG) and Dorothea to work on that.

Question by Tobias if someone can already apply under the new program
> It has been approved, so the program is active. Practically, we need to configure CiviCRM.

Question by Tobias on community consultation regarding membership pre-requisites - it was paused for the fee-waiver community feedback to take place first. Will it start moving again?
> Yes

Board calendar

Guillaume had discussion with Thomas Skowron (OSMCal dev) and in the future it might be possible to subscribe to all board meetings via OSMCal.

Question from Guillaume on how board members are organising their calendars.
Do we need a central calendar?

Points mentioned during discussion

  • Nice to have a central calendar, easily visible and found.
  • In interest of the community to also have visibility of non-public meetings.
  • Would help with record-keeping.

Dorothea offered to send links so that people can subscribe to calendars (see below).

Link for addition of future board meetings to your calendar

If you want future board meetings to be automatically added to your calendar, you can subscribe to the following iCalendar link. Instructions on how to do that depend on which calendar software/service you use. The link is provided for your convenience. Please note that:

  • It might not work when Framasoft servers experience problems.
  • You might get delayed updates, depending on how often the calendar service from your side syncs/checks for updates.
  • Both public and non-public meetings are added to this calendar. The later ones have a note in their description about being non-public.
