Decisions and results

Unblocking migration of forum.osm.org

  • @Firefishy to talk to @cquest and evaluate the best way of supporting the work as well as the complexity of the work to be done
  • Next week we’ll publish the status and an updated plan.
  • @Firefishy discovered that some themes on the old forum did not show the banner.

Plans on help.osm.org transition

  • Questions-answers plugin was deprecated in favour of a new official one (Discourse Question Answer - plugin - Discourse Meta). We’ll wait until this new one is ready for deployment.
  • By 2022-07-14T00:00:00Z UTC we’ll take an informed decision on migration option based on research from @Firefishy
  • This will not be the focus until migration of forum.osm.org is complete.

Public communication plans

  • Keep encouraging new community categories to update their community index info with the new forum. Should preferably be ranked above comparable platforms.
  • The forums should be linked directly from the openstreetmap.org website at some point, but we need to figure out the specifics. (Where to position links? Do we need to open a discussion about how the /help /about pages are going to be updated? Who should handle this?)
