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.

Voting closes on 2020-06-01.

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.

Voting closes on 2020-06-02.
