Hello OSMF members,

I would like to give you all a heads up that the board is thinking of 
proposing both some amendments to the OSMF's Articles of Association and 
some resolutions requiring vote of the membership for the Annual General 
Meeting in December.


  * that any OSMF member, not just board members, may serve on committees;
  * that people who get free membership via the Active Contribution 
Membership system get regular membership, not just the current associate 
  * that if you vote in accordance with orders from your employer or 
other authority,  you aren't a member any more and your vote doesn't count;
  * and whether there should be a third, non-voting class of membership, 
called "supporting member".

We are not 100% sure exactly how many we will propose, and exactly what 
the wording will be. We will draft and redraft and think and consult. 
Please provide feedback, praise, curses, prayers, and hexes. If/when we 
have more concrete wording, we will, naturally, post more.

On the general topic of AoA changesm are there any AoA changes you would 
like? I am calling for an open discussion. 🙂

OSM is an open project, we should work in the open. So I am emailing yous.

As always, if you would like to publish something anonymously, the board 
can consider that. Please email board at osmfoundation.org (either using 
your email address, or you could try something like 
http://anonymouse.org/anonemail.html but we haven't confirmed yet that 
that works). As always, if you would like to contact the board 
privately, email board at osmfoundation.org. As always, this is a public 
message, please feel free to inform other OSM(F) people, especially if 
you think they may not have seen it.
