But 80n, you were aware that we already have incorporated OSM Germany
through the exitsting FOSSGIS e.V. - federated membership or no
federated membership - and it would just have required a few days
advance notice for us to set up something where FOSSGIS accepts funds
for this and forwards the money to OSMF.
If there had been just a note on the lists saying "by the way we're
planning this", that would have been enough to make us think about this.
Sometimes I think the foundation is hurting its own goals by being so
damn secretive. Why did you have to make this a surprise? What was
gained by that?
