Gregory and Mikel, your points are interesting but they are scattered over
various bits of emails and lack the comprehensive narrative that facilitate
a solid understanding by OSMF and OSM folks.
That's where solid reports SoTM and Chairperson are needed. They would
surely feed and guide constructive email discussions which would eventually
lead (or minimally contributed) to a better informed membership, as well as
better ensuring accountability of OSMF resources.
Hence why, we shall look more seriously at reporting than sharing minutes,
collection of minutes and broad overview of yearly achievements.
Best,
Nicolas
