Hi, Maning and friends from mapbox

Welcome and thanks for helping out improve the data for Taiwan community.

We have some tools for collaboration in local communities, we use
Facebook[0], trello[1], slack[2] for communication. And hackpad[3] for
documentation. Basically, all the tools are open to everyone, any
communities members can join the any of the services. They can file
task and call for help on trello, and file proposals and ideas on
hackpad. And we will generate monthly summary reports[6] before the
Taipei meetup, to let the community know what has bee done and what's

You are more than welcome to join us[4][5]. If you are old school, we
are also in #osm-tw channel on OFTC[7] (which bridged to slack #random
channel). Most of the documents are in Chinese, please ask if you have
any problem.

We also have a few tasks on improving data quality. One of approach is
Map's Watch team[8]. Basically, we use some scripts to forward the
changes of new mappers and notes to slack channel, and the team
members can triage in the slack. We also have some QA tool planning in
trello backlog[9][10], but don't have much bandwidth to implement them

You are more than welcome to contribute your views and investigations
on Taiwan's road data. Feel free to use any tools I mentioned to work
with local communities. As local communities, we can help on
explaining Road tagging system in Taiwan[11], and use the open data
map imagery from Taiwan government as a reference.

Coping @kcwu, who help to build some infrastructure tools for Taiwan community.
