It is just to let you know that since I did not received any news from the
work of French translation I have done one month earlier in the
openstreetmap.ca web page, as a member of the OSGeo Local Chapter of Quebec
(http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Chapitre_qu%C3%A9b%C3%A9cois), I post my initial
idea for an openstreetmap Quebec or French Canada :
http://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/quebec/2010-March/000270.html as well as
other project I had in mind (loading script unique to quebec datasets, cloud
services over OSM, labaratoty environment for school / research /
development area in Quebec, etc.).
In this post, many persons in Quebec expressed their support to my initial
idea and one of the member offered his help within his organisation as a
hosting service for : osm-qc site, open raw datasets specific to Quebec,
French documentation unique to Canada / Quebec, loading script, mapping
party news in Quebec and so on. Everything that will be unique to Canada an
din English will be linked to the actual openstreetmap.ca site, everything
that is unique to the French language will be linked to openstreetmap.fr and
everything general to OSM will be linked to the osm "world" site. So, we are
open to all French Canadian outside Quebec to be part of our project as
well, just be sure you follow the discussion on the OSGeo-Quebec mailing
My last question would be : if we want to use the word "openstreetmap" in
our domain name, do we need to be supported by some people, organization or
we can process with this : openstreetmap.qc.ca domain without any problem ?

Thanks for letting us know and we will keep you all in touch with our
