According to the OpenStreetMap Foundation blog, the organisation is growing fast, having just welcomed its 500,000th signed up user, and logged the 10,000,000th update to its map of the UK. The Foundation is a UK-registered not-for-profit organisation that supports the OpenStreetMap Project and some years ago, Bristol Wireless volunteers spent a pleasant day or so donating our time to the project when it came to Bristol.
Over the coming weeks the Foundation is holding a funding drive to invest in its server infrastructure to improve reliability and performance. The fundraising target is £15,000.
