Great to hear Wolf

If you and others who are willing and able to do the sort of support and
education you mention can make it to FOSS4G2008 in South Africa, you'd
be welcomed.

We are planning outreach activities which will need volunteers from the
conference. These will be at universities and schools their aims include
exactly what you propose.

I'm definitely interested in helping out. Both as a support person for 
GRASS GIS and helping in preparing education material. I'd also be
to give actual courses, and lectures about GRASS GIS, and why not other 
products too, but I need to learn a bit more (I'm familiar with

On the same note I've been thinking about asking the local universities 
who teach GIS mainly by using ESRI products (and frankly they have a bit

of a problem doing it, since they can only have so and so many computers

etc...) if they would be interested in learning how to do it with Open 
Source software. The individual teachers seem to be interested, but I'd
interested in a policy level answer. I think that ans OSGeo provided 
support network would help with this also.
