Hi Conference Committee,
Thanks to the great efforts of SLOC and BLOC teams putting up proposals
I just has a quick look at both and noticed that
the support letter on page 92 of the SLOC proposal
 is repulsive and in extremely poor taste.
The wording of the support letter is disrespectful to all of the other
professional organizations who supported OSGeo and FOSS4G conferences
over the years. I also feel that it actually making a mockery of other
support letters in the document.
Since the FOSS4G Conference proposals is a public document published
by OSGeo, I request that an updated version of the SLOC proposal be
posted on the web without including the support letter shown in page 92.
