Reminder | Digitaler Salon: Am warmen Polar | 27. Juli um 19 Uhr

 

E I N L A D U N G

Am warmen Polar. Ich möchte kein Eisbär sein. Was war noch mal Klimawandel und wer rettet die Wale im Internet?
AktivistInnen und WissenschaftlerInnen ermahnen zur aktiven Rettung unseres Planeten. Denn die Polkappen schmelzen, Wälder schwinden und Inselvölker müssen migrieren. In vielen Köpfen scheint jedoch eine Wende stattgefunden zu haben: Naturschutz und Reduzierung des CO2-Ausstoßes sind schon lange kein unbeschriebenes Blatt mehr und weitab von Recyclingpapier entwickeln sich spannende digitale Ideen. Doch wen oder was retten Umwelt-Apps, Geo-Wikis, Online-Spiele und andere digitale Initiativen? Und wie nutzen Vordenker das Internet, um Klima rettende Ideen zu entwickeln? Ist das Internet nur ein anderes Medium für den Klimaschutz oder tatsächlich die letzte Chance für Eisbären und Wale?

Send us your pants nominations

Hi all,

GUADEC is coming up soon, and with GUADEC comes the annual Pants Award.
Every year, GNOME awards a pair of pants to somebody in recognition of
their outstanding contributions. The board will make the final decision
on who receives the pants, but we'd love to hear your nominations.

The award can be for any kind of contribution to our software or our
community. It does not have to be software development work. The only
requirements are that the person is attending GUADEC to receive the
pants, and that it's not a current or outgoing board member. Not sure
if the person fits the requirements? Just nominate! We'll sort it out.

Please feel free to send your nominations as a reply to this email. Or,
if you'd prefer to nominate someone anonymously, email board-list.

Thanks,
Shaun

Fwd: Fwd: Could Gnome Maps use OSM tiles servers?


I'm sorry for the flood, but board <at> osmfoundation.org seems to be 
non-functional.

From: Ma Jiehong <ma.jiehong <at> gmail.com>
To: board <at> gnome.com
CC: operations <at> osmfundation.org

Hello Gnome Foundation Board,

Gnome Maps is currently experiencing a service issue, as MapQuest has 
stop serving tiles. Due to the architecture of the application, this 
appears to brake all delivered versions of Gnome Maps to date.

[A bug report is tracking 
this](https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=764841), and a patch to 
use OSM tile server is being worked on.

However, this requires the authorisation of the OSM foundation.

I've just sent an email to operations <at> osmfundation.org requesting an 
authorisation to use OSM's tiles servers.

The content of the email I sent is present in the bug report, and is 
forwarded to you for reference.

Perhaps the Gnome Foundation could provide some form of contribution to 
OpenStreetMap in exchange of the use of their tile server.

The community would greatly appreciate if any meaningful action could 
come up from this on-going issue.

Kindly yours,

Jiehong

Hello OSM Foundation,

[Gnome Maps](https://wiki.gnome.org/Apps/Maps) is a Linux Desktop 
application part of the Gnome Desktop. It uses MapQuest as a tile server.

However, Gnome Maps is currently experiencing a service issue, as 
MapQuest has stop serving tiles. Due to the architecture of the 
application, this appears to brake all delivered versions of Gnome Maps 
to date.

[A bug report is tracking 
this](https://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=764841), and a patch to 
use OSM tile server is being worked on.

However, we would like to ask for the permission to use OSM tile servers.

This could be a temporary solution if need be.

I visited the [Tile Policy 
page](https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tile_usage_policy), so here 
are some answers to the requirements:

1. Heavy use
I don't have access to usage statistics yet.

2. Clearly display licence attribution.
This should be sorted out in the patch itself.

3. Do not actively or passively encourage copyright infringement
Gnome Maps is a GPLv2 application, and this is never encourage in any way.

4. Calls to /cgi-bin/export may only be triggered by direct end-user action
Export is not possible through the application itself.

5. Highly Recommended: Do not hardcode any URL at tile.openstreetmap.org 
into an app
The application architecture has hardcoded URL, thus this issue :D

If you could participate to the bug report directly, it would be great.
Otherwise, I will make sure the bug report has all of our conversation 
about this issue.

Kindly Yours,

Jiehong

Travel assistance for GUADEC 2016

The GNOME Foundation can offer travel sponsorship to individuals who
want to attend GUADEC and need financial assistance.

We are happy to announce that the Travel Committee is ready to receive
applications for sponsorships to attend to GUADEC 2016.

Application deadline: 2016-06-22. Send in your applications now, do
not wait until the deadline.

I would also like to take this opportunity to encourage, and
especially soon-to-be-sponsored attendees, to volunteer during GUADEC
(you can sign up when registering).

The instructions for sponsorship applications are at
https://wiki.gnome.org/Travel

If you need a visa invitation letter, please also read:
https://wiki.gnome.org/Travel/Invitations

Some additional comments:
* If you are offered help with accommodation, the Travel Committee
will book your accommodation. You should state that you need
accommodation, and leave the cost blank.
* Look for the most economical reasonable option (i.e. through a
service like kayak.com). If we find a cheaper price, that will be the
cost considered during the evaluation and you will make a kitten sad
because you didn't do your research properly.
* Any information you send to the Travel Committee will be private.
* Asking for sponsorship *does not* guarantee that you will be sponsored.
* A good application with good information will be processed faster.
* No personal emails. Keep travel-committee CCed on all of your
replies. Neglecting to do this will delay your application.
* How to get to Karlsruhe: https://2016.guadec.org/travel/#city
* Preference will be given to Foundation members.
* Preference will be given to people presenting talks or workshops at GUADEC.
* Preference will be given to GSoC or Outreachy interns and mentors.
* The Travel committee should confirm that we have received your
application within 2-3 days. After that, we will process them
together. Regardless of whether your application is accepted or
rejected, you will always receive a response. If you have not received
a response by the 29th of May, please do follow up.

You can find us in the #travel channel at irc.gnome.org.

GNOME stand at Texas Linux Fest 2016

Hi everyone,

I've been contacted by Texas Linux Fest, who want to know if we'd like to run a GNOME stand this year. It sounds like a great idea to me - are there any volunteers?

The event is 8-9th July in Austin. We need to get back to them no later than 20th June.

Thanks,

Allan

3. Jan Schmidt
4. Stefan Kost

If any of this members are interested in receiving their ballot please
get in touch with me in order for their e-mail address to be updated
