Ok, @rufuspollock, i had a look at discuss.okfn.org categories for countries, and discuss.okfn.org user profiles.
I still think It’s a third separate discussion to recognize how many are currently active of the organisation bodies and their contact people for:
- Local working groups
- Local groups
- International Working Groups
- Countries with named ambassadors
It would natural and transparent that when the contact person wants to announce the state of their organisation body, they fill out a web form, and by that date, their group status is claimed in the organisation. We already require the Finnish Local Working Groups and projects do this, and they are proud to do so.
Data like this would give the whole network situational awareness about who we are, and empower OKI to systematically support the Chapters, Local groups, Countries and Affiliates.
Technically this can even be a simple google form, maybe using listify or similar, if we feel the technical effort would be too much otherwise. The MVP could be a simplified version of this http://fi.okfn.org/projects/ with a Google form to update it.
