Hi Frank -

I relayed (and translated) your request to our Italian chapter members
+ general discussion mailing list in Italy.

not all of these readers are subscribers of the OSGEO list, but all of
them are to various extents users of the packages contained in your
distribution, and may see a value in supporting this effort.

let's see what happens!
