|'' Background: The applicants had some minor issues with the [https://wiki.osmfoundation.org/wiki/Local_Chapters/Template_agreement Local Chapter agreement]. One of them was that both OSMF and the LC have to report in a yearly fashion, but the wording of the LC agreement regarding the deadline of the report after the end of the business year is slightly different, yielding slightly different rules for both parties. The OSMF Board of Directors discussed this issue at the [https://wiki.osmfoundation.org/wiki/Board/Minutes/2017-07-18#German_Local_Chapter_application July 2017 board meeting] and decided that it can be flexible and is prepared to process the application, if the requested change of the LC agreement is minor, as in this case.
