For what it's worth, I am a real mapper, and I do not feel anything
being shoved down my throat.

Of course, I am also anxious about the amount of change, but I am sure
we mappers can cope with the remapping in a relatively short time.

Yes. And too late.

You get subscribed to it automatically when you become a member of OSMF
(at least I did). Please note that I am in no way associated with the
"evil" board or anything other in the core of OSMF. I simply joined
because I am a mapper and wanted to support the project financially and
have a bit of influence.

Perhaps you should join, too?


Complaining about the OSMF's decisions without being a member seems a
bit odd to me.

P.S Also sorry for the crosspostings. I Recommend FUT
talk at openstreetmap.org only.
