Hi Cameron,

I have no problems keeping the discussions about SDI on discuss-list as
long as the traffic does not increase to bothering people here. I see
this move as an indicator for the relevance of the SDI topic and hope it
will result in a (massive) push of this topic in OSGeo (and local
chapters e.g. D-A-CH aka. FOSSGIS e.V.)
