Marketing committee reporting in with one of our final updates: Website and
Branding July Update <http://www.osgeo.org/marketing/rebranding/july.html>

Thanks to key sponsors GeoCat and Boundless for financial support.

The exciting news is the beta website is taking shape day by day at

Content migration has been delayed,thanks to Frank Warmerdam for stepping
in top provide Get Interactive access to our drupal server.

LDAP login using "osgeo id" is not avaialble, for new content we have a
number of forms:

   - Software Projects <https://goo.gl/forms/rBTxobMSBNGiEXnB3> - we invite
   project teams to fill in this google form with project details, screen
   snaps and a team photo if you have it. If you have previously written an
   OSGeo Live overview this will take five minutes (most of which is finding a
   good team photo). We ask that you discuss which service providers
   (companies, organizations or individuals) should be listed as core
   contributors for your project.
   - GeoForAll Labs <https://goo.gl/forms/rKyJmN3yfdFFj1553> - the
   GeoForAll project already has a jump on collecting lab locations and
   details. Check the GeoForAll list for details and coordination.
   - Service Providers <https://goo.gl/forms/FHrIeJjBtfI8e2g53> - we invite
   companies, organizations and individuals working in our community to
   connect with website visitors
   - Resources <https://goo.gl/forms/bzuUrsFAYEXRDVtq2> - our community
   produces a wide range of material we would like to promote on the website.
   If you have any appropriate presentations, workshops, tutorials, white
   papers or videos please share.

FOSS4G Europe marked our first chance to try out the new OSGeo branding.
Thanks to Marc Vloemans for coordinating our debut at the OSGeo booth. The
best part was the code-sprint where we had several teams working. Nicolas
Roelandt and Jody Garnett worked on the content collection forms above.
Astrid, Luca, Venka and more focused on reviewing printed material and
coming up with a list of changes and corrections.

Special thanks for Luca for joining the marketing team in July, helping
communicate feedback on the printed materials and prototyping changes. Luca
has worked hard to make an SVG template for teams wanting to produce an
information sheet for Boston.

If you are attending FOSS4G in person please sign up on the OSGeo Wiki
<https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/FOSS4G_2017_Code_Sprint#Website_Training> for
website training. We ask that projects and committees take part in this
important activity.
