They hadn't wasted any effort, because no effort existed...

Anyway, the request is to the OSGeo board to clarify requisites of hosting
for OSGeo projects.

As an example, should it be *required* to allow anyone with an OSGeo
account (and no other) to file tickets ? Should be be *required* for
the in-development source code to be downloaded by only using free
software tools ? Those kind of criteria.
