IMHO, the requests of a certification were meant:
- for users, who would like to have their certificate stamped with the "OSGeo
certified" logo
- for teachers, who think they can sell better a "certified" course, and have less
competition from newcomers.
In both cases, I agree with Cameron: not sure people is ready to pay more for this -
probably it's just a "nice to have" feature.
All the best.
