Here’s a summary of things I did in OSM in January 2020.

  • Mapping
  • Coding
  • Community
    • Co-founded RainbOSM, a Telegram group chat for LGBTQ+ people in OSM. Telegram is a closed source chat service, which is unfortunate, but there are a lot of people who use it.
    • Submitted 2 links to WeeklyOSM.
    • Participated in many twitter conversations about OSM #1 #2 #3 #4 #5 #6 #7 (Another closed source communication platform).
    • Participated in some conversation on LCCWG IRC channel.
  • OSM Foundation Board
    • Jan 2020 Board meeting
    • OSMF board has decided to have a face to face meeting in London, so I had to book travel for that
    • Evaluated 7 fee waiver applications for the OSMF
    • Read the background material for contract agenda item
    • Read the background material for local chapter application for SK, AL, DRC, Oceania, AR
    • Phone call with community members (A. Mustard & OSM Irl group chat)
  • CWG
    • Filed an expenses claim form for the stickers I’ve been sending out.
    • Sent out 600 stickers to the OSM community in the Phillipines.
    • Wrote wiki page about promotional material programme.
    • Looked into making more attribution fixer stickers.

Very nice! I would love to see something like this from more board members and others active in the community 😃

Thanks for being so open. I hope other board members will start doing the same. Some boards member’s action as more visible to me than others, because they are active in the same channels.

Summaries like this would help in appreciating the hard work the board members do in less known areas, at least that is what I hope.
