'''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 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 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. It has been very successful, with several hundred people receiving it.
   
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.

| The [[FOSS_Policy_Special_Committee|FOSS Policy Special Committee]] at the request of a working group and individual board members, asked cloud68.co to set up the Open Source collaboration suite Nextcloud with OnlyOffice for a testing period. OnlyOffice provides collaboration tools for documents, calendars, and forms. According to the committee the tool was well received and it provides a fundamental pillar according to the FOSS Policy to offer Open Source alternatives for an inclusive community. It also fulfills the obligations of the OSMF to comply better with the European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)". After the end of the rest period, the FOSS Policy Special Committee recommended to the board to contract two years of the tool and evaluate afterwards the adaption and use, which was [[Board/Minutes/2021-03#Decide_on_NextCloud|approved]].

Revision as of 13:29, 17 September 2021

Not for wide dissemination yet - in progress, will be modified.

OSMF updates - August 2020 to August 2021*

  • 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 first, before being sent to the membership.
  • Previous reports: here.

* With minor exceptions.

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.

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.

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".
