As I cannot access the indicated source: Is there a good reason not to use the boundaries drawn in this Saudi document? Man77 (talk) 10:17, 29 January 2016 (UTC)

I could not find any license information on the pdf. Maybe there is a statement somewhere on www.cdsi.gov.sa? As long as we are not certain that we have permission to use the data, we can not use it. --Lyx (talk) 13:37, 29 January 2016 (UTC)
Thanks for your reaction, Lyx. I understand your concern, but by question did not target to copy one-to-one from the Saudi document, but rather just to get "our" map roughly accurate. Openstreetmap does not only want to be free and open, but also correct, I suppose.
But no, I could not find any license information neither in the pdf nor on their website. Man77 (talk) 16:56, 2 February 2016 (UTC)

JOSM Arabic translation

Arabic is currently only #6 on our list of potential future JOSM translations despite the large number of countries speaking it. 2000 core strings must be translated for a new language to be added. We'd love to see the Saudian community help to complete the translation so we could add this new language to JOSM. See JOSM wiki for details and Launchpad to translate more strings. --Don-vip (talk) 01:52, 12 May 2018 (UTC)
