we is the OpenStreetMap-Foundation and in a more enlarged view, the community of OpenStreetMappers.
I believe it is legitimate to discuss which projects should get funding, because we think they can and should have a future.

Do you know if there is some kind of analytics integrated into adobe air and whether it can be turned off?
