Discussing the WG plans on the mailinglist (and how they relate to the BAG set in Seattle). Want to have plans from all WG discussed by the next MT meeting.

Sam has send us an e-mail with several questions related to the start-up of the Maps4All project. The MT has approved various interim measures:

1) That donations may be solicited via the OSMF donate button for the purposes of this project

2) That donations intended exclusively for the project are to be made with the comment “mapsforall”

3) That Sam may spend these donations, on an accrual basis, on this project

4) That these interim measures are valid until the 1st February only.

It is expected that the maps4all project will seek approval for the formation of a working group at the next MT meeting on 1st February.
