Circular Resolutions

2021/Res39 Approve active contributor membership application 2021101010000216

The Board currently decides on active contributor membership applications based on non-mapping contributions on a case-by-case basis.

Did not pass on 2021-11-02 with
4 not voted: Allan Mustard, Guillaume Rischard, Jean-Marc Liotier, Mikel Maron.
3 votes against: Tobias Knerr, Eugene Alvin Villar (No mapping activity for almost a year and the list of non-mapping contributions are not described clearly. Given that this is a renewal application, I would have opted to give the applicant a chance but the activity, mapping or non-mapping, is too little.), Amanda McCann (No OSM edits in the last ~11 months. No details on other OSM contributions, except a confusing, and unclear reference to “OSMF meetings” which doesn't make sense. They may wish to reapply is they provide more details, or correct their application.)

Application initially processed by the Membership Working Group.

2021/Res40 Approve active contributor membership application 2021101210000123

The Board currently decides on active contributor membership applications based on non-mapping contributions on a case-by-case basis.

Did not pass on 2021-11-02 with
3 not voted: Allan Mustard, Guillaume Rischard, Jean-Marc Liotier
2 votes in favour: Mikel Maron, Eugene Alvin Villar (Some sporadic mapping activity over the past year, and given that this is a renewal application and the non-mapping activities are clear enough for me, I will accept this membership application.)
1 vote against: Amanda McCann (Not enough details on their current OSM contributions. The OSM using account shows very few mapping edits lately. No details & links on their other OSM contributions were provided. I'm voting no this application, but I think they should reapply, but this time provinding links & details on their other contributions.)
1 abstained: Tobias Knerr (Some non-mapping activity, but it is not described with sufficient detail to make a clear call.)

Application initially processed by the Membership Working Group.
