- Marjan (new member) will try to report what is done/needed to ensure what is needed is written down, maybe using the wiki
Made with OpenStreetMap
- Tobias reports that it’s commonly asked about, and that foundation backing could be helpful in spreading such an initiative. Thinks we could ask LWG first to check on potential issues.

- Amanda & Pete say you should ask LWG for feedback
- Tobias & Pete suggest that CWG could promote people's efforts at attribution logos (support community creativity and get people interested)

- Tobias says he will contact LWG to ensure there are no big problems.
- Pete will blog about this idea
