ITO has now completed the creation/update/ standardisation of articles  
for every English and Welsh local authority (At county/unitary level)  
- our more recent work was to add the required articles for Wales. We  
will do Scotland sometime if no one gets there first.

For the Welsh articles we have started added an 'Official links'  
section giving a link to the official authority website as a start.  
Possibly this section could be expanded to give details of the  
appropriate person to talk to in each relevant official capacity. I  
suggest that we use a similar format for England and Scotland - ITO  
will populate those sections in a basic way at some point if others  
don't get there first.

It might also be useful to have a list of OSM Mappers who don't mind  
being contacted by officialdom for each authority on the article to  
make it easier for someone in an authority to contact a relevant  
mapper and start a discussion.

When this is done Peter can then explain how the 'interface' between  
officials and OSM is meant to work.
