All

I've talked to a few people recently in the UK geo-scene about various partnerships and other bits and bobs that would make sense for OSM.

Unfortunately they don't make a whole lot of sense to do anything official with OSMF. It would make a lot more sense if there was a GB/UK chapter of OSMF which could build out a lot of the UK specific relationships and partnerships.

Of course, OSM started in the UK but that doesn't mean OSMF is all about the UK. Especially today, where only one board member actually lives there.

Abroad, the US and ES chapters seem to be picking up speed and a UK chapter, if it makes sense, would help build out a ton of potential things that OSMF can't (perhaps shouldn't) do.

Thoughts?

Yours &c.

Steve
