Suchith is doing a wonderful job at pushing the importance of Education,
as well as the OGC-OSGeo relationship

this....hopefully with myself, Mark from OGC, Denise from OGC, Suchith,
etc.. regarding OGC/OSGeo relationship. Arnulf i hope as well
these are meetings with an agenda, with specific goals (between the
OGC-OSGeo relationship)...essentially this is continuing the momentum of
our F2F dinner with the OGC
jmckenna:	like it or not the president of both orgs should be meeting,
talking. so i am hesitant to push this off. but i don't consider me a
champion...i'm folllowing the lead of Suchith and you Anne.
