Thank you for your recent suggestions. Selection of conference website 
software is very topical. It was one of the suggestions brought up is 
discussions following foss4g 2012 analysis.

I'm keen to expand our conversation between Eclipse/LocationTech and 
OSGeo in relation to FOSS4G.
I understand that LocationTech has a strong interest in being involved 
in spatial conferences, which I think has the potential to be very positive.
As we are starting to document our FOSS4G processes, I think the time is 
right to start solidifying how LocationTech would be involved in a 
FOSS4G series.
For instance, it will be very helpful to know if LocationTech would wish 
to provide assistance to conferences by providing web site support, or 
maybe a dedicated staff member, or maybe financial support. If such 
support were provided, what would LocationTech be looking for in return?

How would you like to progress such a conversation?
