Politics, Chagos Islands, .io domains
According to the BBC [https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-50511847] the UK was given six months by the UN to end the illegal occupation of the Chagos Islands. The UK has wilfully ignored this deadline. Families forcibly removed from the Islands still cannot return.
The .io TLD refers to the British Indian Ocean Territories, specifically these islands. If you're using a .io domain, you are paying to support this occupation. Please consider switching to a different TLD.
We ran an informal poll of #OpenStreetMap people on several #Telegram channels to determine their **primary** navigation/mapping app that consumes OSM data. It's very likely that some people are using multiple apps, but the poll only asked them to choose one.
Impossible to mention all apps that but the popular apps were:
* OsmAnd 58% - both official and the #FDroid version
* Maps.Me 35% - including the fork on #FDroid called "Maps"
and a sprinkling of votes for #MagicEarth, #Mapy #LocusMaps
I'm slowly working on my manifesto for the #OSMF election, and writing my answers to the suggestion questions. I'll let yous know when it's done
