[Talk-us] proposal for deletion: talk-us-ga and

I think using local lists is up to the local OSM groups, but I agree with the principle that one list is enough for the US as long as it is not used quite a bit more than it is now. But I can certainly imagine that local OSM groups may have a lot of local things to discuss that they may want their own list for like we have seen it in Europe.

Neither list has any real traffic, and what they do tend to just be  
reposts of talk-us.

Splitting the community at this stage is retarded, we should wait for  
talk-us to grow to a sizable level and then begin spinning off as  
required, like we did with the other lists.

Yours &c.

So we had discussed earlier having a call regarding forming a US Chapter.
I suggest we set-up a call for sometime next week.  Since we don't have that
many time zones involved I'm going to suggest next Thursday (October 29th)
at 4 PM EST unless there is a major push that we should do things outside of
working hours.

I don't have any experience using free conference call software if anyone
has a specific recommendation I would be open to that.  I'm not sure what
OSM working groups normally use.

Thanks,

Kate Chapman

Drop.io provides free conference calling features. Last time I used it was
over a year ago, but it worked pretty well. I created a drop here for OSM:

http://drop.io/openstreetmap

Conference number is listed on the page.
