[OSGeo-Conf] FOSS4G Beijing - a regional event

on the website at http://2012.foss4g.org/ there is still no option for
submitting abstracts although the submission has been opened -
apparently without notice to any of the regular OSGeo channels.
Workshops submission ends in two weeks.

No international speakers have been announced and there are only Chinese
sponsors listed (although interest by regulars was documented as early
as December 2012). This makes FOSS4G in Beijing a regional event at best
and I believe we must make clear that this is not going to be ''the''
global meeting of the tribes.

We should at the same time continue to support FOSS4G in Beijing as a
regional event and help them wherever they let us.

On http://2012.foss4g.org/ the link to the OSGeo Wiki page in the lower
right should be removed as it is not being used (and currently points to
a 404).

Best regards,
