G'Day Bruce,

I will send you (and the discussion list) the reply I sent Ravi.

Evening Ravi, you will find many people are away this time of year on
> holiday.

It it is a difficult balancing act when a volunteer steps down. As a
> community we need respect an individual's privacy while encouraging their
> involvement in the future. This is why you are not finding a wiki or any
> email (beyond the two Jeff sent out).
> We also try and respect the volunteer nature of our board, many of which
> are away on holiday. I have scheduled an IRC meeting for early in the new
> year giving the board an opportunity to consider action.

If you would like to help please consider keeping an eye out for OSGeo
> activities for twitter or writing a blog post about the activities in your
> community. Sharing stories helps inspire everyone and can help our
> community.
