Can WeeklyOSM explain its "attitude"? I often find myself reading WeeklyOSM items scratching my head over how it doesn't represent a few people's personal opinions and priorities, especially when it comes to OSMF topics. 
Also, what is the best way for us to point out issues with WeeklyOSM? I think WeeklyOSM is a great resource, but everything we do can be better right? When I've pointed things out in the past, the response has been a bit defensive.

Hi Lukasz,

  Just as an idea, I think an absolutely fantastic regular update on OSM things is the Weekly blog (http://www.weeklyosm.eu/). I'm not sure who manages it and if it has any formal affiliation with OSMF (the about links send me to some seemingly unrelated websites), but it does a wonderful job of summarising discussions, technical tips, news, and a lot of other things about OSM.

Thank you very much for your evaluation of our work. 

   It's exactly the type of a regular update that I think a lot people who express increasing interest in OSM by joining OSMF would be interested in. Perhaps its contents could be disseminated through a mailing list with autosubscription for new OSMF members?   

We offer such a service ... see it on our website: "Subscribe to weeklyOSM via Email"


[...] FYI 
weeklyOSM/Wochennotiz is independent of all organizations and companies. This applies to the OSMF, HOT, FOSSGIS, local chapters ... and all organisations and/or companies (not listed here). ;-)
We see ourselves as a service of the community for the community. Therefore the "about link" also leads to some independent websites. 
weeklyOSM/Wochennotiz generally refrains from personal opinions and political statements.  weeklyOSM/Wochennotiz also has an attitude that can also be expressed in the text.
