Dear community and board members,
Today I found out that OSGeo is a a SPONSOR of the FOSS4G-2017 Boston
conference.

This is disappointing me !

At least for two reasons:

1- foss4g is the OSGeo's conference, so OSGeo is the host not a guest (have
you ever seen AGU sponsoring it's annual event?)

2- OSGeo is already providing seed and risk exposure money so it shouldn't
need to pay for get exposure or being listed in the sponsor page.

So, as an OSGeo charter member, I formally ask the board to remove OSGeo
from the sponsor list !

Regards
Maxi
