Hi Madi,

I still did not obtain any confirmation mail about proposed presentation
- do you know by chance, how far the process is?

As for the workshop, it seems odd to combine MapStore as concrete
product with whole OSGeo stack and more dialogue-based workshop.

I see them as two different topics for completely different auditorium.
I would understand, that MapStore people would feel upset, if they would
have to share their time with "pure" OSGeo.

From my point of view, all decisions are bad (except having two full
workshops accepted). I think, that the best option would than be to
share the time with MapStore and gladly accept their offer kind 30:60
(rather 60:30 - OSGeo in general, MapStore as concrete example of local
company using and developing OSGeo projects), if possible.

NOTE: This is nothing against MapStore. I wish them all the best and I
think, they deserve full workshop time slot as well. INSPIRE conference
committee forses us to compete as international organization with
semi-local company (GeoSolution). This is simply not all right (or do I
see it completely wrong?)

I also think, this shows us, that OSGeo is not taken seriously as
important partner to conference committee of INSPIRE conference and that
brings me back to our SDI committee proposed earlier - I have to push it
little bit further (I do not like pushing to hard, though).

> Another request from the committee was to delineate a new title for the

> "Ping-Pong match: OSGeo & INSPIRE (with a practical intro to using MapStore
> for INSPIRE Services mashups)"
> Of course also this is open to discussion.
> Please let me know ASAP your reaction.
> Thank you and best regards,
