Hi everyone,

Since 2008 we had a https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Top_Ten_Tasks 
wiki page which listed things new developers could work on, that would 
improve OSM users experience. Things like OSM bugs (notes) integration, 
an improved history tab and clickable points of interest. The list was 
last updated in 2011.

We at the Engineering Working Group are now working towards updating the 
top ten tasks page, so it reflects needs and wishes of the current 
OpenStreetMap users and mappers. We have some ideas, but we also need 
your help.

You all use the website, the API and other core services daily. And you 
must have things that are bothering you, or that you wish were 
implemented. Please go to https://pads.ccc.de/k4rlFOGIHb and add these 
to the list. Anything can go there: it's a brainstorming, not a final list.

Next Tuesday, when the EWG meets, we will look through the list and 
identify the tasks for the top ten. If you wish to attend, mark the 
and set up Mumble: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Mumble . We will 
be happy to hear your thoughts.
