[OSM-talk-be] Future mapping parties

Things could perhaps have been better, still I think we may call the
mapping party in Turnhout a success. I should like to share some
thoughts about future parties, comments are eagerly awaited!
-) Calendar: I should be happy to see much more mapping, more parties
would be most welcome. I will do my best to come to Deinze - is there a
date fixed, by now? - but should like to settle for the next one
already, after that. Luc showed me the very poor state of mapping at and
around Hannut, and I think it is more than time some more attention was
paid to southern Belgium. How's about last weekend of June 2010, for Hannut?
-) Organisation: precious little was done, and we did some good work
even so. The "pie" that Ivo produced was a very nice tool, and I should
like Ivo to be our offical piemaker from now on, until relieved by the
next volunteer. The one thing I missed in Turnhout was a board, with the
pie showing, and a list of "who does which part" next to it. Next step
would be to have a real dispatcher, wearing sunglasses and an official
OSM cap, marking the progress of the party on the board, and explaining
it all to the press crowd.
-) Website: as already announced, I have put some effort in this idea,
mainly hoping to get either a consensus that we don't really don't need
our own web pages, or someone more able than myself to set this up AND
maintain the thing - the latter is the hardest part.
