[Osmf-talk] attribution: board letter to facebook

We all are overjoyed when OSM data is used more and more.
And we all are happy when big players like Facebook use OSM data.

Sometimes in a rush they might miss properly attributing OSM, and
getting to somebody who can fix it is hard (it's a big company after all).

Perhaps OSMF members can ask the board for a favour - sending a short,
polite letter to Facebook, asking to give mappers a fuzzy feeling and
add a proper attribution?

Discussing multiple steps (a direct letter first, then a public letter,
then one directed to their copyright contacts etc) is likely out of
scope for this thread.
