OSGeo news and events are actually controlled by you: you can draft the 
news item yourself (include image files [hint: your FOSS4G logo with 
ribbon]) and the exact text as you want it to appear) and then send that 
through an email to news_item at osgeo.org  Then the OSGeo news team 
(several volunteers) post that item to: the osgeo.org news & events 
sections, Twitter, and Announce list.

Once you get this domain ready it would be great if you could submit a 
news item for this.

Added Gérald to the CC of this message.  Gérald would you mind making 
this change for foss4g-africa.org ?

Already joined!  Very happy and proud to help bring FOSS4G initially to 
Africa in 2008 and then for its glorious return this year, which will 
create amazing momentum for 2018!  I have noticed that this mailing list 
has been quiet though, I'm hoping it kicks into action soon :)

Talk soon,
