[OSGeo-Discuss] [Board] AGM Followup - what our foundation is doing in 2017

It looks like the following projects have not provided an update during
the AGM and should be called to attend our next board meeting:
- MapGuide Open Source
Given the number of the projects in that list, perhaps it would be
easier to organize separate meetings (or video calls), asking projects
and board members to attend.
I volunteer to follow up with the project officers and arrange those
meetings if the board approves.
