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
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?
