Austria subcategory

Category name

Austria

Is this a top-level category or a subcategory?

Subcategory, below the Communities section.

Description of its purpose and which open mapping groups it will serve

Subcategory for the Austrian local community to discuss topics specific to mapping in Austria.

Why is this new category needed instead of being hosted as part of the existing ones?

forum.openstreetmap.org will stop to work

Is this a new space or does it already exist on other platforms? Where?

Current volume of messages on the former platforms, if any (per week/per month)

One of the bigger ones in the old forum with 765 Topics and 5.000 Possts

Is there a transition plan for the old platform to this new one? (please link or describe)

Communication in the old forum, the Mailinglist (ML) and the IRC/Matrix-Bridged Channel #osm-at:matrix.org
See Mit 30.09.2022 hört forum.openstreetmap.org auf / users: Austria / OpenStreetMap Forum for example.

(Optional) A link or list of the category specific guidelines

Currently we will only use the current ones to be found at Forenregeln (geändert am 13.05.2018) / Rule (modified 2018-05-13) / users: Austria / OpenStreetMap Forum

List the usernames of the category moderators
