Just an update.

I've reached out to ITO, geofabrik & Mapbox to see if I can get some
industry professionals on the panel also.

Dermot, would this be something OSMF board would be interested in being
represented on? Would it be possible to get some feedback on it, I know its
short notice, but it can't be helped.
