need to be an OSGeo member to use email mailing lists, the wiki or to
contribute to any projects but we do encourage your registration.

= How to add Yourself to the Member List =

To become an OSGeo member, register yourself on the Wiki. To do this, you
will need a Wiki account, which you can get by clicking the 'log in'
button on the upper right hand corner of the Wiki[1].

For more information about using a Wiki, see the Wiki Help. After your
registration, let people know in your personal Wiki user page (your login
name in the top right of the Wiki) what you're about, and what you're
interested in. Please simply add the text [[Category: OSGeo Member]] to
your page to become auto-registered on the member list page.

Since you've read the FAQ[2], you know that everyone participating is a
member, so adding yourself to the discuss email list is the first thing to
do (which you probably already did if you are reading this :-).

If something does not make sense to you or you have a idea how to improve
please let this list know.
