[Talk-GB] Survey: A "UK/GB OpenStreetMap group"?

Hi all,

Thanks to those 65 people who have responded to the survey so far. I want
to address a few of the comments on the mailing list.

The idea of a group has been discussed many time before but it has never
progressed. I believe that this is because it has never been clear what the
group should do - some people want it to focus on X, others on Y. The
survey is designed to gather quantitative data on the "what" and also the
"how". With the results of the survey we can look at the next step with
real evidence to support it.

So open-ended questions were omitted, as was matters related to the name of
the group. And yes, I admit that the subject line could have been clearer*,
perhaps "The What and How of a UK/GB group?".

Please continue to encourage your OpenStreetMap friends to contribute to
the survey.


* Written communication is bad, as different people interpret things in
different ways. This is especially true when crossing cultural boundaries.
My top tip is to assume positive intent and if in doubt ask :-)
