Here is the tricky part; certification does not help this (unless we make a really good effort to stress the soft skills; and make such involvement part of the certification process).

Indeed the main benefit of certification here would be as an income draw to keep OSGeo going. And until I can see a decent set of numbers I am worried that certification will be yet another example of how the foundation can help promote open source; and not an example of how the foundation can afford to promote open source.
