I think it is better to confirm before attributing statements to

Nobody in his right mind would want Open data out of OSGeo and least of 
all Jeff.
Yes, we must find a way to reactivate the Public Geodata committee. Perhaps
renaming it as Open Geodata committee would be a start. We also have a new
"Open Geoscience Committee" [1]  with great work being done in longterm
archiving of FOSS4G videos, for instance.

What I would suggest is to strengthen tie-ups with OSM,  HOT and perhaps 
building something like Data4All, emulating the success of out 
educational outreach,
