Jeff - while I'm sorry to hear of your departure from the
Conference Committee and the OSGeo Board, I hope that it
proves to be a positive move for your work, and life (and the
balance between them). Good luck in your future endeavors!

Board/Conference Committee - In a non-OSGeo-related discussion
this past weekend I was reminded of the value of doing an
"exit interview" when an employee leaves, and I'd suggest that
an "exit interview" with Jeff, if he is willing, could provide
some useful information. Of course any such interview should
be done in private (conference call?).
