Hi Jeff,

This must have been a tough call for you. I think you have made the 
right call.

I also stand by my previous statements about your great personal 
characteristics and contributions to OSGeo:

and I'm hopeful that you might consider aligning with at least one. One 
thing that immediately comes to mind is the out reach role you have 
filled so well over the years. You are very good at "touching the guy 
who sits in the back row and inspiring and empowering them".

I do plan to take you up on your offer of a beer together when we are in 
the same city, at the same time next. My shout.

With the greatest of respect,
Cameron Shorter
