I would also like to thank the key sponsors GeoCat and Boundless, this is a

For the work ahead in July here is what we can expect:
* *System Administration Committee*: remains in the hot seat for getting us

others who's work we would like to promote (even if we have not defined a
* *PSC Members*: Please start thinking about content generation July, there
are training at the foss4g-europe and foss4g boston event. We will
certainly start with the great work done by OSGeo-Live, but to make the

sprint (and have some early adopter bright green badges to share), and will
be holding a training session at foss4g-boston.
(Whew! Let's do all the things).
