Hello Jorieke and everyone,

Here is a summary of the OSM Africa meeting we had last week which was
mainly on organizing a SoTM Africa conference next year.

   - The SoTM Africa Working Group will be meeting once every week starting
   on Monday 17th October, 2016 (everyone here is invited)
   - There will be a general committee and a local committee that will be
   set up after selecting the venue
   - Leading to the meeting next week, more information will be gathtered
   on what is required to organize a SoTM by reaching out to OSMF and other
   communities who have organised a SoTM before
   - We are to check out the events calender for 2017 to select an
   appropriate date
   - A call for venue will be made afterwards
   - More people should be called upon to join the SoTM Working group
   - A wiki page was created for documenting the planning process here

This is an open call for anyone would like to join the SoTM Africa Working
Group, if interested please send me a message so I can add you to the list.

Kind regards,
