“I was wondering what the status of the trademark policy. My understanding
was there was a draft policy which was with the LWG and CWG for
Given the current understaffing of the CWG, might it be better to refer it
to the LWG and LCWG instead?”
Mike says: Frederik Ramm has made an initial draft and Simon Poole is working on it: https://docs.google.com/a/osmfoundation.org/document/d/1PnjZEZZ9QzhgsnF-zXjrbx7iLSg8JVCa8LovTwQnx6U/edit . LWG has been asked to comment but is not yet officially involved. The main issue is how liberal or tight it is ... local chapters would be the most likely to be affected by this. LWG takes no position other than promoting cautious is best and feels this is up to the community. Suggest that, with Simon’s permission, the tighter version is released for community discussion and then modified depending on comment received.
CWG has mentioned they are seriously understaffed. What can we do to get people in our community active in WG’s (and in particular the CWG)?
ACTION: Dermot to interview Richard W as a human interest piece to promote CWG’s role and try to encourage people to join.
What are our next steps in recruiting the MT Chair?
Matt: OWG is asking for a funding-drive for the new database server with a goal of GBP 40K.
The meeting unanimously agrees to the funding drive.
