Brainstorming: Communication from World to OSMF / CWG

Can we sort out current incoming communication channels and perhaps provide a FAQ or guidance on who to contact for what?  Many channels.  Some have complained that “OSM does not have a face” for them.  

Discussion and summary of existing channels to continue.

Richard and Hurricane to discuss contact page, for next meeting.

For new members, “Why join the Foundation?”

Emilie: even board members likely have different descriptions of “What is the Foundation to you?” This key question may point to why people join OSMF.  What should we say to encourage people to join the Foundation.
