the community should vote on a member to send to the OSMF board, this person would be rotated once in a while.
Geonames should be made available as its own separate layer that is maintained in osm but as its own separate layer and updated on a regular basis

Sometimes there are changesets that are really strange. It would be cool if we could create Bugtracker tickets from Changeset IDs. This would help to get in contact with the Changeset user and help to revert or fix strange/wrong/vandalism changesets.
