of osmf is Wikimedia Italy, i.e. in Italy OSM is a wikimedia foundation
project. But of course this doesn't mean that Wikipedia editing rules are
applied to mapping.

Martin, please NO FUD, you know that Wikimedia Italia is not just wmf
Italian counterpart but we do other stuff related to open knowledge and
open access and libraries.

Our main source of income does not come from Wikimedia Foundation.
