Thanks Robert,

I am at the OGC meeting in calgary and was just encouraging the CITE team
to attend. As OSGeo is providing several reference implementations it would
be good to have a bit more interaction with the OGC in our comfort zone
(i.e. a code sprint).

> I would also like to propose that we consider expanding the scope by
> inviting both OSGeo and the Eclipse Foundation's LocationTech
> <http://www.locationtech.org/> projects (JTS, uDig, GeoTrellis, GeoMesa,
> Geogig, GeoJini, etc.).  There are several developers that work on both
> OSGeo and LocationTech projects, and we think this would be an opportunity

> larger venue and there are likely other considerations before pursuing this
> idea.
> I'm interested in your feedback.  I'd like to potentially book a block of
> hotel rooms as well as settle on some dates.
