Hi List

There is some discussion going on in the OSGEO Discuss and OSGEO Live mailing lists about potentially using this pre-colonial map of Africa for the OSGEO-Live CD Cover. If you live in Africa (I guess that is a check mark for most of us) take the time to visit the link below, look at the thought provoking maps and share your voice with the OSGEO Live team! See email below:
