I fully agree with Jody, OSGeo EU will be a local chapter with its
freedom as all the others, only the people who want be part of it
should be part of it (for example I'm in Italian local chapter but
right now I choose to not be part of OSGeo EU)

As I already told during this days I don't fully believe on it right
now (maybe in the future will be different) and I'm a little bit
worried about the energy that it will take from other

However with more than 20 founders, most of them really well known in
the OSGeo family, I think that OSGeo EU should be accepted as new
