Me in OSM
My name is sylvain letuffe (aka sly), I live in chambéry, savoie, france in the alps and an OSM contributor since january 2008
- email : sylvain A letuffe o r g
- XMPP : firstname.lastname@example.org
What am I contributing on ?
Mainly contributing in France and near where I live where hiking trails, mountain related features, sport amenities is what I prefere to contribute on. But also contributing admin boudaries.
- Anything that comes close to mountain sports gets my attention So the Hiking page is a good start and I'm working on it.
Dev and admin on tools and services
I'm a system administrator at work and a bit of a developper for pleasure and like geo datas. I'm involve in :
- Mangement of some French "fondation" servers
- FR:Servers/layers.openstreetmap.fr a Tools to display as tiles, errors or information about osm datas
- FR:Servers/api.openstreetmap.fr an Overpass_API, XAPI and API 0.6, osm2gpxnode_API OSM service to access a copy of OSM data
- Hiking/mri a map focused on hiking related information
My current (2014) opinion on OSM's management
I admit wiki voting for proposal has flaws (like some people voting on tags they haven't used at all, not everyone knows a vote is running,...), but that is still the best we have and I support it as being better than nothing. Improving it is the way to go not discarding it.
DWG / moderator group
- Be more open : public discussions
- Members : elected by the OSM community
- Enforced rules : defined by the OSM community
- More self-determination of local communities (the OSM community is a community of communities + free standing persons) about how, when and what to import.
- Should not be the one deciding the future of OSM but applying the community's choices. Only if no choice comes out by discussion, take one.
- Yes to local chapters
