[Osmf-talk] Welcome Mat for Organizations

The Welcome Mat was conceived at the 2017 Board F2F meeting, it's an OSMF project. It made sense for the Advisory Board to have a role -- that includes Corporate Members and Local Chapters. It might seem corporate/humanitarian centered, since the audience for it are organizations working in OSM. Certainly this site can improve even more, and suggestions and pull requests are welcome.
No opinion from me on whether openstreetmap or osmfoundation GitHub organization is more appropriate.

It did occur to me earlier that the repo should really be under
openstreetmap rather than osmfoundation? I can move it if you like.

Isn't the advisory board's role to advise? I didn't realise they
were going to actively produce things. Certainly when you asked
to link to this from the web site I had no idea it was a product of
the advisory board although it did seem a bit corporate/humanitarian
