'''Background'''<br>
  +
The trial run of the OSMF microgrants program was overseen by the [[Microgrants/Committee|Microgrants committee]], whose composition was decided by the board. Initially, the program was set to fund 10 projects with a budget of up to 5000 Euros per project and for a maximum of 50.000 Euros. The policy framework can be read [[Microgrants/Policy_Framework|here]]. All the project proposals (funded or not) are visible on the [[osm:Microgrants/Microgrants_2020|OSM wiki]] and some of the 12 selected proposals were presented [https://blog.openstreetmap.org/2020/07/01/osmf-microgrants-program-congratulations-to-selected-projects/ on the OSM blog].

'''Background'''<br>
 
'''Background'''<br>
The OSMF's [[Membership/Active_contributor_membership|Active Contributor Programme]] started last year, and it grants free OSMF associate membership to people who “can demonstrate that they have consistently made sizeable contributions to OpenStreetMap”. By default, if you have made a map edit to OSM on at least 42 days in the last year, you get in. Otherwise the Board looks at your contributions and decides on a case by case basis. It has been very successful, with several hundred people receiving it.

The OSMF's [[Membership/Active_contributor_membership|Active Contributor Programme]] started last year, and it grants free OSMF [[Membership#Associate_Members|associate]] membership (rather than [[Membership#Normal%20Members|normal]] membership) to people who “can demonstrate that they have consistently made sizeable contributions to OpenStreetMap”. By default, if you have made a map edit to OSM on at least 42 days in the past 365 days, you can become a member. Otherwise the Board can look at your non-mapping contributions (decision is on a case by case basis). The program has been very successful, with [[OSMF_updates/2021-08/Membership_statistics#Membership_statistics_as_of_September_11th.2C_2021|several hundred]]] OSMers becoming members of the Foundation.
   
Initially this program only granted people [[Membership#Associate%20Members|associate membership]] of the Foundation, rather than ([[Membership#Normal%20Members|regular]]) membership. Associate membership is nearly identical, but there are some little legal differences, like a requirement to give the Foundation your address. Importantly, associate members are not legally members of the Foundation, and cannot be elected to the Board, nor vote on changes to the Foundation's Articles of Association.

Subsequently, this group has been formed as a subcommittee of the LCCWG. The [[Local_Chapters_and_Communities_Working_Group/Moderation_Subcommittee|Moderation subcommittee]] is a temporary group of OSM community members working on [[Local_Chapters_and_Communities_Working_Group/Moderation_Subcommittee/Scope_of_work| this Scope of Work]] via [https://hackmd.io/oqst2Pt1RlyLITj5lmMLcg this Implementation Plan] (hack.md).

We are happy to have made the conference more accessible by providing live translation to other languages. While watching the live talks, attendees could connect to a [[osm:Mumble|Mumble]] server and join their preferred language channel. Over 40 live translations of talks were done by [[osm:State_of_the_Map_2021/volunteers/translation|volunteers]] (thanks!) in the following languages: Bahasa Indonesia, Bengali, Italian, Polish, Spanish and Russian. Translations were recorded for future subtitling of the videos.

In October 2020 there was a [https://www.openstreetmap.org/user/mikelmaron/diary/394595 call] by Mikel Maron ''(board member)'' to revitalise the committee.
 
Some members of the committee were involved in drafting and distributing the "call to take action and confront systemic offensive behavior in the OSM community", though the call did not seem to be signed as coming from the Diversity and Inclusion Special committee.
 
 
''<small>As a result of that call, the board has asked the [[Local_Chapters_and_Communities_Working_Group|Local Chapters and Communities Working Group]] (LCCWG) to work with other parts of the community and come back in January with a suggested course of action, which led to this [https://wiki.osmfoundation.org/w/images/8/80/LCCWG_moderation_subcommittee_scope_of_work_proposal_2021-01.pdf report] and the formation of the LCCWG moderation subcommittee (please see the section "LCCWG moderation subcommittee working on updating the Etiquette guelines and on process for moderation of two of the OSMF-hosted mailing lists").</small>''

Around March 2021, Wise informed us that it would close the OSMF account and sometime after that, the PayPal OSMF account was not accessible as well. You can read about it in the Treasurer's reports during the monthly meetings, as well as the [[Board/Minutes/2021-04#Treasurer.27s_report|April 2021 board discussion]].

About this page

  • Content: Highlighting updates related to the Foundation - mostly news from the volunteer Working Groups, the Board of Directors, the Local Chapters (in relation to OSMF), the Advisory Board members and the rest of Foundation bodies. In some cases, diary entries and posts from individuals are linked, if they are related to the work of their working group/committee/etc.
  • Details: For more details you are invited to read the minutes or reports of the Board and the Working Groups (links on each section).
  • Accuracy: These reports do not go through a formal acceptance process, like the public Board minutes are. This might change. Reports are made known to the Working Groups and committees first, before being sent to the membership.
  • Previous reports: here.

Adopted/Completed/Approved

Ongoing or discussed

Please note that the list below mostly does not include regular work by working groups and topics have been mentioned during board meetings.

Working Groups updates

Working Groups are the main way in which the Foundation supports OSM in specific areas. Working Groups' members are volunteers.

Like everything in OpenStreetMap, we are very open and always welcome new working group members and helpers. If you support the ideals of OpenStreetMap and open data and want to help, just email the group that interests you.

Committees, Special Committees and other Foundation bodies

Committees
Committees are defined in the Articles of Association 91-94, and not typically employed by the Board. OSMF currently has one such committee.

Committees, Special Committees and other Foundation bodies: Personnel committee | Diversity and Inclusion Special Committee | FOSS committee | Takeover committee | Microgrants committee | Software dispute resolution panel | Advisory Board

Committees: Personnel committee | Special Committees: Diversity and Inclusion Special Committee | FOSS committee | Takeover committee | Other Foundation bodies: Microgrants committee | Software dispute resolution panel | Advisory Board

Special committees
Special committees are different from the committees above (defined in the Articles of Association 91-94) and cannot be considered to be a subgroup of them. See rules 6, 7 and 8 under section 9 of the Board rules of order.

Committees: Personnel committee | Special Committees: Diversity and Inclusion Special Committee | FOSS committee | Takeover committee | Other Foundation bodies: Microgrants committee | Software dispute resolution panel | Advisory Board

Committees: Personnel committee | Special Committees: Diversity and Inclusion Special Committee | FOSS committee | Takeover committee | Other Foundation bodies: Microgrants committee | Software dispute resolution panel | Advisory Board

Other OSM Foundation bodies
The Microgrants committee, while having the word "committee" in its name, was not created as a committee defined in the Articles of Association 91-94, and thus is listed under "other Foundation bodies".
