|''During one of the regular operations meetings, the QGIS' usage of the OpenStreetMap Standard layer and the Nominatim geocoding service was discussed. The [[Operations_Working_Group|Operations Working Group]] (OWG) sees significant tile usage from QGIS: ~ 40% of tile requests come from QGIS users. Typically with this level of usage, the OWG would ask the requester to use another tile provider, or take action to block their usage. However, as QGIS is part of the open mapping community, and the board has [[Board/Minutes/2021-03#2021.2FRes10_Nominatim_integration_in_QGIS| previously agreed]] to help with [https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Nominatim Nominatim], the thought is to make an exception and ask them to help with supporting costs of the service.''
  +
  +
''OWG suggested to the board asking for a certain financial amount per year, based on QGIS current traffic levels. In this amount, a portion of the osm2pgsql grant was included, because osm2pgsql is a key part of the current standard layer architecture.''
  +
  +
''The OWG suggested that the amount should be revisited in a year, if QGIS' traffic levels significantly change (e.g. 3x change), or if OSMF was to lose sponsorship from the current content delivery network. The expectations are that QGIS will continue to follow the [https://operations.osmfoundation.org/policies/tiles/ tile usage policy], including displaying license attribution, not bulk downloading, and following the technical requirements. Although not required, the OWG would also like to see a second OpenStreetMap-based tile layer in the QGIS defaults. This would spread the load and add more options for QGIS users.''
  +
  +
''The Nominatim load is difficult to estimate, but the OWG recommended asking for another x% in sponsorship and revisiting after 6 months when they have data on their usage. Instead of QGIS being limited to 1 Nominatim request per second, each copy of it would be limited to that. It is essential that this limit is followed, because it is automatically enforced. The other requirements of the [https://operations.osmfoundation.org/policies/nominatim/ Nominatim Usage Policy] would continue to apply, including displaying attribution, no auto-complete, and caching of results.''

|''openstreetmap-website was a topic of discussed in the consultation on the [[Engineering_Working_Group|Engineering Working Group]] (EWG) restart. Many of the issues discussed have to do with resourcing of openstreetmap-website, beyond the remit of the EWG. We currently have stretched volunteer capacity helping figure out the direction of the website and pull requests. We have identified and filled resource gaps for [https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/ID iD] and site reliability and we need options for resourcing openstreetmap-website.
