Hi Venka,
One thing I would not like to see happening is that OSGeo starts competing with companies on FOSS4G support, workshops and training (maybe, if given at commercial rates, I would consider this).

GeoCat Bridge for ArcGIS allows instant publishing of data and metadata on GeoServer, MapServer, PostGIS and GeoNetwork. Visit http://geocat.net for details.

> priority tickets. A certain % of the sponsorship funds will be reserved
> for paying developers  if/when necessary to deal with issues related to
> such prioritized tickets.
> Sustaining, Principal and Supporting sponsors will be permitted to
> conduct training sessions with OSGeo Software and such workshops
> could use OSGeo Logo on banners and course completion certificates
> issued to the participants. Sustaining sponsors could hold 6 "OSGeo Approved"
> training sessions per year, Principal Sponsors 4 and Supporting Sponsors 2.
> Sponsors will also have access to list job opportunities, internships and
> fellowship openings in their respective organizations on the OSGeo Website.
> Wild thinking, perhaps.
