as you said, the document is only a draft and I think all positions are
set to "0$", so it's just a placeholder, not the foreseen budget ;-)

Cheers, Till

> A good idea is to focus on OSGeo participation, for example attending

> participation developing new standards)
> We would like to ask you to help us with budget proposals to assist your
> project. This will help us set aside a realistic amount of funding.
> Please add your project info to the budget draft at:

> ideally by Dec 30 ahead of our next board meeting.
> When making a budget request please keep in mind the vision and goals of
