Like so many wiki pages there is really only one good action: send it to
the circular folder.

https://www.openstreetmap.org/help already lists all OSMF operated
services, and at SOTM we discussed that we might add in one way of the
other a pointer to the preferred national comms channel. Lets simply
keep that up-to-date.
