[Talk-GB] OSM UK: Updates from November

The Advisory Board has now published this [1]. We have already had one
person respond in a way that makes it appear like it is a vote between the
two documents. May I re-iterate that this on it's own is not helpful. The
aim is to gather discussion responses that can aid further the OSMF
designed process. Therefore if you do comment then please provide some
context. This way the DWG and/or OSMF board can fully consider your
comments during the next stage of agreeing a policy. In dev terminology
"pull request" type comments on either documents are also good here.


Thank you,

> Hi all,
> The latest OSM UK C.I.C newsletter just went out (see below/attached). You
> receive this if you are a member of the organisation or signed up to the
> newsletter via https://osmuk.org/join-our-newsletter/
> The Advisory Board topic is a bit of a pain in the backside due to poor
> timing so I thought it best to raise it here. As you may or may not be
> aware the OSMF have tasked the Data Working Group (DWG) with writing a
> policy for organised editing. The Advisory Board (AB) pulled our thoughts
> together way back in October but because we are a relatively new group (had
> our first phone meeting last week) we didn't get it across the line in time
> to feed in to the DWGs work. Despite this, it looks like the AB will go
> ahead and share its proposal/thought/guidelines in the coming days. This
> could appear to be quite jarring with the DWG but we have the same aim
> (i.e. to make OSM better) so hopefully it will spark some useful discussion.
> Disclosure 1: I am a AB member and fed in to the text in October.
> Disclosure 2: There is a link via the OSMF board between the DWG and the
> AB so the AB's work _may_ have fed in to the DWGs but neither party
> officially spoke. As noted this is due to the fact that AB is relatively
> new rather than any desire to undermine each other.
> Thanks,
