[OSGeo-Discuss] New Semantic Mediawiki based OSGeo Member Map for the OSGeo Wiki

I implemented a first version of the OSGeo Advocates list based on SMW 
structured data in my testing wiki [1].

Please have a look and provide feedback about what is missing, or what 
should be changed.

Additionally an Advocate map and a sortable table, for example (more 
result formats available), are also possible to create from the data [2].

These lists/maps/tables are created from SMW data, that every user 
enters via a Form [3] (or template) into the wiki. The best place to 
enter data about one self, is the User: page.
