You said that HOT is closed and self-elected, a pretty outrageous, untrue statement.

Point taken on the wiki page lacking info. We need to fix that. There was a thorough report on the list.

This list is to discuss the OSM Foundation. HOT is not a Foundation project. Let's move any further discussion somewhere else.
