Hi all,

Both documents seem fine to me.

The intro to the event describes what you could expect from a local
FOSS4G, written apparently in a format required by the public
administration that is addressed: general and detailed objectives,
impact of the event and so on. The letter is concise and just states
that OSGeo will participate on the event as mentioned.

Juan, if you think it's worth some kind support from the Spanish
Language Local Chapter, just tell us. Note that we are not a legal
entity at all (it's been always hard to think about a legal entity
that covers all Spanish speaking countries with our current

Anyway, please consider also to promote FOSS4G Perú at OSGeo-es mailing list[1].

Good luck with your event and please, keep us posted!!
