Agenda & Minutes

Minutes by: Michael
1. Adoption of Minutes of last meetings
The LWG last met November 15th.
2. MATTERS ARISING (open action items from previous meetings)
3. Finalise today's agenda
4. Poland UMP-pcPL
Michal is an ordinary contributor to the UMP-pcPL project and kindly joined us to give a more detailed outline of the project so that we can look at ways cooperating and potential keeping data from UMP-pcPL contributors in the OSM. This will be very difficult as it probably requires the agreement of *every* UMP-pcPL contributor for any data at all to be left in. We learnt, however, that virtually all initial OSM data from Poland came from UMP-pcPL imports, so a lot is built on it.
5. Second bulk emailing
Around 24,000 targeted mailings in German, French, Russian, Spanish, Italian and Dutch completed in the early hours of Monday 21 November 2011. Very successful, over 3,000 acceptances in 3 days. We are now just under 50,000 acceptances from pre-May 2010 registrants. Germany has jumped from around 50% contributors accepting to 70.3% (http://odbl.de). The only countries below 70% are now Roumania, 68% and the UK, 69%. 25 folks have also declined, many of these accounts have very small or no contribution.
Our thanks to Simon Poole for the original suggestion and Richard Weait, Tom Hughes and translators Frederik, Emilie, Eugene, Ivan, Simone and Henk for particular good organisation and execution.
Our sysadmins have also kindly provided the following chart of preferred language and number of users. The count is number of accounts with edits, but without a CT decision.
6. Database re-build (if anything)
- Email to legal-talk has gone out, responses need digesting.
- We have at least one case of an old anonymous user who has accepted the new contributor … but their contributions are still going to be flagged for folks to re-map. Grant has asked Tom if he can determine how many more. We will check that they can still flip their configuration and put out an email to all anonymous contributors asking them to do that.
- We will start putting together a list examples of when an object can be deemed to be clean and put it out for debate, (some stuff from a non-compliant user in the history can be acceptable).
Translators please note, this resource has slightly been updated.
- .yu emails
28 emails have gone out in Serbian, but not have had any response yet.
- Dynamic Data (Oliver)
Tuesday Nov 29th 11:00 PST / 14:00 EST / 19:00 UTC / 19:00 GMT(UK) / 20:00 CET
