I'll join somewhat in my concern about proper areas for ED to focus
on. The "somewhat" is because I am not enthusiastic about saying
"don't do that" when I don't have a follow-up "do this instead!".
I agree that the Journal is probably a bad effort/reward proposition,
at least for ED time.
I agree that "increasing relevance" is a key goal. And that doing so
requires more external facing. Getting published in existing venues
would be a good step. Answering "why OSS" and "why OSGeo" for users
and funders. Try to move beyond the theoretical, into the practical: http://postgis.refractions.net/documentation/casestudies/
But I don't have a good, prescriptive set of directions. Part of that
being because what the foundation is "selling" still not definable, so
making recommendations on sales isn't easy.
