Made with OpenStreetMap
Tobias has sense checked with the LWG - over to Pete to think about the ‘campaign’
- Make it clear that this is for fun and not choosing an official graphic for OSM attribution

- Pete to share materials with cwg in advance to sidestep pitfalls and traps by next month
Stickers / merch
- Amanda has started using the new account(s) for paying for things (Paypal, DHL & Deutsche Post) and the OTRS email ticket handling system for []

Mastodon instance announcement?

WeeklyOSM as a source of content?
