I'm working on some presentation about OSGeo relationship to INSPIRE
directive (some preliminary czech version of presentation, which should
be presented at this years INSPIRE conference [1])

And it came to my mind, that OSGeo does not have any body, related to

While I agree, INSPIRE is mainly EU-only topic, I think, implementing
INSPIRE has big market potential and software, which does not indicate
support for INSPIRE is banned from to be used in public organizations in
EU. I believe, also "rest of the world" can profit from changes,
necessary to be implemented in EU.

Therefore I would consider INSPIRE committee in OSGeo as important body,
which would coordinate efforts of OSGeo projects towards INSPIRE, so
that we could declare: OSGeo projects are INSPIRE ready or we are
working on it.

Any opinions to this? I'm personally usually against forming "yet
another committee", but in this case, I do not see the topic to be
covered and it really is important issue here.
