This is just a reminder about the fundraising drive aimed at improving
the PostGIS topology support in upcoming 2.0 release.

<< I will implement a Geometry to TopoGeometry importer in
   PostGIS-2.0 but only if 10 other people will donate 250 euro. >>


The idea is that such a new function would make it extremely simple
for you to start using topology for your layers. As simple as:

  UPDATE layer SET topo_geom = toTopoGeometry('layertopo', geom);

You could use the topological representation just to cleanup the data [1],
to produce a pyramid of simplified versions or simply for storage and
exchange with other systems (topological GML output already available).

As of today 2 people have signed (thank you Andreas!, thank you Brian!).
It will take 8 more signatures to get it started.

The pledge deadline is December 20th.
Go postgis community, go !
