"Nation of Makers"

It appears America has also been pushing for an equivalent type of ‘hackspace foundation’.

“We need your help! We are in “build mode” right now, targeting a Nov 15th deadline. Pick whichever of the following two contribution methods fits your style.”

not entirely clear which organisations it represents other than
"makers". It’s a bit curious.

Those involved on github appear to be mainly directors from:

The Maker Station, Mrietta Atlanta makerspace
Hacklab North Boynton
