Subject: [Osmf-talk] New board members: Can you update bios?


   as you know we're in the middle of a license change process in which, 
unfortunately and probably due to non-ideal communications on the part of 
OSMF[*], some people have reservations concerning the foundation, and/or assume 
sinister motives behind the license change process.

Today I have been asked whether OSMF board members earn money for the OSMF job, 
and whether their day job is anything to do with OSM. I said no they don't earn 
money from OSMF, and pointed them to


- where all board members have a short bio & their business interestes listed. 
It is very good, especially in times like these, to have such information online 
to make OSMF's work transparent. However I noticed that the page is still in its 
pre-SOTM form (with Ulf, Andy, Michael listed instead of Emilie, Ivan, and 

It would be great if it could be updated soon.


[*] It's a fact but not a criticism - I'd rather have OSMF use £10k for new 
servers than for paying a slick PR consultant to make mappers docile.
