Have all those full of praise for this actually read


Do you find anything odd about it?

On a more general note it was always my assumption that maintainence of 
this would be turned over to the OSM community once the first version 
is done.  It is somewhat questionable to not have the CWG lead the 
design of such a document in the first place but given we have a result 
now there is no real need to question that in retrospect.  But AFAIK 
this would be the first part of openstreetmap.org that is under direct 
control of the OSMF board - which does not seem such a good idea.

Long story short:  I think it would be a good idea to turn over control 
and responsibility for further maintainance and improvement of this to 
the CWG in line with the OSMF mission statement which states for the 
board's scope:

"Does not undermine the Working Groups by taking on tasks that could be 
advanced by them"
