Hi Wolf, Jody,
the comparison in Sydney is obviously open to anyone having the will
to come and represent the project. As I wrote, I was focusing on QGis,
gvSig and uDig, since for those we found people for the conference in
Italy in mid-November. But, I repeat, anyone welcome.

Regarding what will be done, I don't want to go too far. I am trying
to understand what an average user needs and would like to see, as
well as a public administration.
Not because I am not interested in seeing many things, but because we
will have 90 minutes for 3 GIS. So it will be important to extract
things to make people watching satified.
Buffers and similar things are for sure inside this task, but I would
not go too deep into strange analyses.

Regarding Stefan Steiniger's & alter comparison, again, I don't want
to get this academic, I want to hear what these days what users need
and try to show how to do it on the different GIS in life mode, with
everything that may happen, even bluescreens :)
