Hi all,

Thank you for the precise figure. This would confirm the estimation of 
GPB 5000 for the Berlin meeting.

Hence, having a face to face meeting for the board is

- roughly as expensive as running our complete infrastructure for four month


- more expensive than running Nominatim, Taginfo, and Overpass API and 
probably more secondary services together for a full year.


- as much money as the membership fees of all OSMF members (the last 
known to me number has been about 300).

Best regards,
