[Board] New MOUs in draft ...

It's great to see the interest of these two new groups, I very much 
welcome that. However, for someone who doesn't know them it's a bit hard 
to picture what those MOU's will mean in practice.

I see in both cases that the plan is to establish Open Source Geospatial 
Laboratories (OSGL)... perhaps as a starting point if we knew more about 
what an OSGL does in practice that might help? I guess that would mean 
getting students to work on or using OSGeo software? What else?

These may sound like trivial questions to those involved in the process, 
but I'm sure many observers share the same questions, and more.

I can talk about them further at the meeting tomorrow, or answer questions here, but would like some agreement to sign off on these.  Both organisations and individuals involved are very excited about getting these set up with OSGeo.
