  • Next step: Patrick to ask Simon about OSMF paying for domain names, while Joost will look for additional info.
  • Next step: Clifford and Eugene to Create OSM Wiki page for LCCWG where WG can post info.
  • Recommendation for the OSM website itself:
    • Put map to a subpage
    • More info on the landing page
    • Provide data to CWG instead of LCCWG taking the task of updating the OSM website itself.

SotM 2020 (GL#3)

  • Next step: Maggie to start a draft diary entry talking about the SotM presentation with a look at behind the scenes.

Local Chapters and Communities Congress (LCCC) (GL#10)

  • Updates: Even more responses to the LCCC form have been received:
    • 45 responses to date.
    • Preferred date is November 21 at 53% of the responses.
    • 80% can provide a recorded intro.
    • 70% have attended SotM before.
    • Most responses came from Africa thanks to Geoffrey.
  • WG agreed to set the date to November 21.
  • Next steps:
    • Create registration form.
    • Create OSM Wiki page to describe the event and provide details.
    • Create a diary post announcing the event.
  • Agenda: Input can be some of LCCWG's work. A suggestion is to invite Brian to do a demo of microcosm.
  • WG agreed to use OSMF's BBB server.
    • Next steps: Joost to ask if this is okay.
