The OSGeo Newsletter development team invites you to contribute news,  
articles, event summaries, programming tutorials and more for the  
upcoming OSGeo News - Volume 1. There are several sections planned  
for the newsletter. General descriptions of each category can be  
found on the Newsletter wiki page [1]. Specific committed articles  
are listed on the Newsletter Volume 1 wiki page [2].

There has been already been a lot of interest to contribute articles  
and some sections are already quite full. You are welcome to propose  
an article for any section, but we are specifically looking for more  
articles in the following categories:

* News - any particularly newsworthy items you would like to pass along
* Event Reports - have a conference summary that you would like to  
* Topical Studies - introduce a theoretical topic that is of general  
* Programming Tutorials - serving as an introduction to coding an  
application or task
* Interview - conduct an interview with someone in the community
* Developer Announcements - brief summaries of what your project team  
has been doing recently and future outlook for the project

To volunteer for an article add your name and article title to the  
Volume 1 wiki page in the appropriate category, along with contact  
information.  Or join the Newsletter mailing list [3] and tell us  
about your idea. An editor will follow-up with you to arrange  
delivery and timing. Articles need to be delivered by March 23st.  
Length can vary depending on type of article and should be discussed  
with the editor for your category. If you want to contribute but a  
particular category is full (or you need more time), you are more  
than welcome to add yourself to the list of articles for the  
subsequent volume, Volume 2 [4].

We look forward to working with you on producing a great newsletter  
that is of interest to everyone in our communities and beyond.
