The OSMF membership secretary investigating the membership spike from
one company is cause for concern alone.

CloudMade employees brought to OpenStreetMap exclusively by their
employment and their OSMF membership being paid via their boss does
not seem kosher to me. Let alone it seems unfair to the rest of the
OSM Community in Ukraine (and the rest of the world) who are unable to
have their voices heard by joining the OSMF.
