I totally agree on this point. The fact that charter members only
official role is to nominate new charter members and the Board is IMHO a
weakness. Their role as OSGeo champions (and "Ambassadors" if there's
consensus on that) should be emphasised. Quick ideas:
- personal pages on osgeo.org (osgeo.org/members/johndoe)
- @osgeo.org e-mail address (even an alias is fine) to be used as their
- interviews on the main blog
- a track record of their public activity wrt OSGeo promotion, software
development, management, documentation and what else
In this way the charter members could gain a higher visibility in the
wider geospatial community and be recognised as official representatives.
BTW is there any process in place to "remove" charter members if they
become inactive, move to another planet or are deemed unfit for the
purpose by the community?
