Thank you for the warm welcome to "the club" Cameron.
Indeed, we are aware of the Handbook and look forward to learning from it
further, and in due time contributing to it (as we mentioned in our
proposal). We have seen the collaborative spirit in action and have already
received invaluable advice from OSGeo'ers who have been involved in past
global conferences. And indeed, that advice influenced our proposal.
We look forward to working with OSGeo over the next ~21 months and hosting
some fabulous times in Boston in 2017!
All the best and many, many thanks...
MT & the BLOC
