Hello everyone!

In ~2hours the 2018 Google Code-in contest ("GCI") begins, and runs 
until about 12 December.  This will be OSGeo's second time participating 
(last year there were 3,555 students from 78 countries, aged 13-17 years 
old).  It is special to see these young students dive into FOSS4G. 
Thank you to several OSGeo projects for participating this year: istSOS, 
GeoServer, GRASS GIS, MapServer, OSGeoLive, pgRouting, PostGIS, QGIS.

Please be kind to the young students, who may be coming into your 
project's network and asking questions.  (they are completing short 3-5 
hour tasks).  They really are the future of OSGeo.


Victoria & Jeff (OSGeo GCI admins)
