Right. I do not want to leave it until October. I haven't seen a
schedule that says when our projects will have it to start to migrate
to.  I do have a schedule for other things going away. So I do have a
deadline for having an alternative. If you're saying this will be up by
FOSS4G, that's really good news!

Hi Gary and all, 


>From my perspective, Jo and I have a good start on building the
'alternative' you were saying someone should just go and build.  This is
a prototype, so far only focused on the web interface and some community
tools.  The other needs are on our list but should really be done on
"the" OSGeo server and not this prototype.  That is, we don't want to
start porting SVN repositories, project mailing lists, etc. onto this
temp. server set up we have.


In my opinion, the next step is getting some cash to devote to
sysadmin/support and server infrastructure/hardware.  This whole project
of getting a transition plan together has landed in Jo and my's laps,
which I'm fine with, but we are both ultimately still working off the
side of our desks.  I hope you are still considering putting an ED in
place, because moving these kinds of projects along could easily be
managed by the ED so board isn't micro-managing the affair and feeling
helpless.  I'm not sure volunteers will be able to take it all the way,
especially on the sysadmin side where we need some guaranteed quality of


I think you do not want to leave this until October.  Having as much of
this started as possible for the FOSS4G conference is a good target, at
least for the web/community UI side of things.  There will be increased
momentum around OSGeo by then, and at EuroOSCON - I'd hate to still have
a bad web site when we are promoting at those events.

Board Members,

Putting on my MapGuide hat here, where are we with the consideration of
a new infrastructure for OSGeo? If it moves off of CN, we will need a
new one. If there isn't a new one in the offing and no firm schedule for
creating one, we'll have to build one ourselves, and by my reckoning, we
will have to start in October.
