Hi all.
Thanks for this. I welcome this change, that I think will make OSGeo much more
effective in promoting free and open source geospatial software.
On the other hand, I still have problems with annual FOSS4G, which has a cost that
scares away many top developers. IMHO (sorry to insist, I raised this point earlier)
the meeting should be free for developers (committers to OSGeo projects), and more
expensive for businessman. The net cash flow should be from business to GFOSS
promotion, not drawing from our precious developers.
All the best.
