Dear TC -

As you may now the OGC and OSGeo have a formal Memorandum of
Understanding (MoU). One of the key objectives of this MoU is to
encourage open and lively dialogue between the OGC standards setting
activities and the various OSGeo open source projects. In the spirit of
that cooperative and collaborative objective, the OSGeo Board approved
an Open Letter to the OGC Membership regarding the current GeoServices
REST API vote. The OSGeo Board asked that I share this Open Letter with
the OGC Membership.

The Cover Letter from [Jeff] McKenna is here:
