Indonesia subcategory

Category name


Is this a top-level category or a subcategory?

Subcategory, below the Communties section.

Description of its purpose and which open mapping groups it will serve

To discuss topics specific to mapping in Indonesia.

Why is this new category needed instead of being hosted as part of the existing ones?

Currently there is no Indonesia-specific category here.

Is this a new space or does it already exist on other platforms? Where?

Is there a transition plan for the old platform to this new one? (please link or describe)
