Dear all,

[moved from private mail to discuss list]

please let me know your thoughts on moving that a
"Public Geospatial Data Committee" be formed tomorrow
in the board of directors meeting:

I feel that establishing this commitee would be useful,
also, to make use of the infrastructure (mailing list with archives, etc).

If we manage to (sort of) stabilize the mission at
I will table the motion - otherwise postpone

Best regards


PS: The mail below was sent to the individuals listed on the project
wiki page:
