Dear All,

What about the Ordnance Survey in the UK? They use OpenLayers as part of
their "OpenSpace" mapping API (
http://www.ordnancesurvey.co.uk/oswebsite/web-services/os-openspace/api/index.html)
so in theory are probably contributing to OL2 if not OL3. Arnulf might have
a better idea about this, in his new role with them.
