Tim, Gavin and others,

My primary concern with the OSGeo Africa chapter is it's area
of responsibility.  It seems to me that having it be a branch of
GISSA implies that it is really a South African OSGeo chapter.

Can you update the chapter page to discuss the territorial ambit
of the chapter, and how you can ensure broad participation from
across the region?
