  • Mobile app criteria
    • Board had F2F recently, so may not have had time to consider & respond.
  • Google "authpocalypse"
    • Google are changing the way their OpenID system works, and we need to switch to ensure this stays working more details.


17:31:44 <zere> minutes of the last meeting: - please let me know if anything needs updating.
17:32:40 <zere> a quick note: i was at the Karlsruhe hack weekend this past weekend, and it was a very enjoyable event, so i'd like to thank woodpeck and Geofabrik for running the event!
17:33:07 <zere> other than that, i didn't have anything additional, and nothing added to the agenda before the meeting.
17:33:10 <zere> #topic AoB
17:33:34 <zere> so the meeting is open for any items that anyone would like to discuss.
17:33:59 <RobJN> Hi. Anyone hear from the board post their F2F? Any idea if EWG and/or the app criteria were discussed?
... no one had heard anything ...
17:43:19 <TomH> can we consider a plan for the upcoming google authpocalypse
17:46:10 <RobJN> What is the google authpocalypse?
17:47:03 <TomH>
17:51:47 <zere> 20th April? that's pretty soon... so i guess not that many people are using it if it took 3 months for it to get reporteD?
17:52:14 <TomH> well we have a large number of people with google openids on their account - hard to tell how many actually use it
17:52:28 <TomH> it was only reported when I found it as a result of soemthing else
17:53:20 <TomH> I'm working on the tech issues, though it is unclear if there is any way to match the existing openid URLs to the new method(s)
17:53:56 <TomH> but the issue of signing up and registering for auth tokens will need addressing
17:54:29 <zere> in practice, does that mean that anyone with an "old" URL will fail the login?
17:54:39 <TomH> potentially
17:54:47 <TomH> I haven't got far enough along to answer that yet
17:56:23 * zere boggles at
17:57:58 <TomH> ah that looks good
18:01:55 <RobJN> Oh, off-topic but thanks for all the work on the routing. I'd been following the github issue for a while so know that this has been long and challenging but very much worth it. It will be great for OSM :-)
18:04:16 <RichardF> :)
18:08:41 <zere> was there anything else anyone wanted to talk about?
18:13:42 <zere> thank you all for coming, and i hope to see you again next week! :-)
