OSMF Local Chapters criteria
OSMUK is officially affiliated with the OpenStreetMap Foundation OSMF as the UK's Local Chapter. There was a question on OSMF-Talk that asks what the joining criteria should be, i.e. how do you identify the 'official' Local Chapter of OSM in a country in such a way that it doesn't stop organisations with limited resources or red tape to battle with, whilst avoiding fake ones. https://lists.openstreetmap.org/pipermail/osmf-talk/2019-July/006131.html
We'd like to join in the discussion in a positive manner. Personally, I believe that the discussion drifted away from the original question, and that we should focus on that.
