While I agree with others that you have been very enthusiastic toward 
OSGeo ideals, I'm also believe that there are some unanswered questions 
which should be addressed.

In particular, a while back you stepped down from the OSGeo Board 
mid-term, while you were in the position of OSGeo president. I don't 
think a public explanation was provided, but I was aware that there was 
some passionate discussion happening in public email lists at the time.

If you are considering sitting on the board again, I think an 
explanation should be provided.

Regards, Cameron
