Welcome Mat to organisations

The Welcome Mat will be a guide to organisations and corporations that want to be involved with OpenStreetMap. It will have information to familiarise themselves with the project, the community and especially to learn our expectations and their responsibilities.

It was proposed during the Face-to-Face board meeting in May. Please note that the name might change.


Date Updates
2017-05 Creation of the Welcome Mat proposed during the board Face-to-Face meeting.
2017-08 Concept note sent to the Advisory Board. Key feedback received was to avoid making a separate site, to expand the about page, to modify the osm.org navigation header and to choose a name that will not be problematic for people who do not have English as a native language.
2018-01 Draft in progress
