I've prepared a rough draft for a process outline and new schedule
. Please review and revise. Otherwise, express some positive
I have a few thoughts about the schedule: Do we really want to be
asking questions and making the decision during FOSS4G 2015? Should
we ensure that the decision is *after* FOSS4G 2015 (future FOSS4G
focus at 2015 should be 2016 not 2017)?
I've also started a cursory 2017 RFP process in SVN . Please
update as needed.
I've prepared a draft for a press release , please revise.
Should we make an OSGeo email alias, rfp at osgeo.org for any private
communications (likely sponsors)?
The website RFP page  needs to be edited too. I think that I have
rights to do this once we decide on details.
Thanks and best regards, Eli
