Wordpress theme renewal

Firefishy moved the repo. Maybe Harry will get around to doing a more extensive renewal:

  • Theme renewal might solve some of the common issues
  • Look at more recent themes
  • Harry to have a look at it
  • Autotranslate functionality - how was this supposed to work? via WPML plugin - done per sentence/section

Blog posts in progress?

Pete connected Andres to Harry for notathon wiki structure discussion


Amanda brought several piles of  stickers to SotM in Florence and basically all were given away. There  was a miscommunication with SotM and I didn’t bring the SotM stickers (I  thought Christine would). But someone on sotm team was able to quickly  order some replacements locally.

[Dorothea] Distributed pins and stickers at SotM (not paid by OSMF) Prepared community sticker packs which were taken by people who will distribute them to mappers at these countries: Cambodia, Brazil, Guinea, Ecuador, Indonesia, Malawi, Hungary, Ethiopia, Italy, Zimbabwe, D.R.C

Change to CWG meeting schedule?

Can we possibly shift the CWG meeting one hour earlier/later? (To fix Harry's school pick-up clash)

  • To follow up on email - Marjan to follow up...
  • 1 hr earlier better for Marjan
  • 1 hr earlier and later better for Harry
