This site looks very interesting, it would be nice to see links to
FOSS4G2008 in the Events area. And a link to OSGeo in the Basic FLOSS
links section of FAQ.

But my main question is: are transcripts of the presentations at the
OSOR GIS Community Workshop available? I'd like to read a few of them.

The GIS (Geographic Information System) Software Community aims at
supporting the development and referencing the open source geospatial
software on the OSOR. The OSOR GIS Community's goal is to promote
exchange of software and experience, and to encourage the use and
collaborative development of community-led projects. The OSOR GIS
community evolves: this web page is updated regularly.

The OSOR GIS Community workshop (pdfAgenda) - held in Brussels on 27
June 2008 - initiated the building of the community, and discussed how
the OSOR could help the Public Administrations in the re-use and
efficient development of GIS software. The exchange of experience during
the workshop proved very helpful to the attendees, and it was decided to
dedicate a section on the OSOR for further exchanges.

Following the workshop, the Open Data Spatial Publishing project was
initiated on the OSOR, aiming at discussing the need for a license for
the publication of spatial data that guarantees the legal compatibility
of data shared and integrated in an SDI. A mailing list will soon be set

Further collaboration is foreseen and currently under discussion with
other existing GIS networks.
