Hello everyone!

We had a good Board meeting yesterday (minutes:

- approved 2013 Budget (http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/OSGeo_Budget_2013)
   - some may be interested that there is now some funding put aside to
support Code Sprints
   - SAC has funding for a much-needed backup server

- a slight glitch on GeoMoose (http://www.geomoose.org/) graduation, a
formal email vote will happen shortly to make this official instead
(stay tuned!)

- pycsw (http://pycsw.org/) officially enters the incubation process.

- FOSS4G 2014 request for hosting has been announced (thank you to PaulR
