Hi OSGeo edu folks,

1) With Tyler's system functional (YES! What a great step forward for us!) could
each of you who "own" one of the 46 entries on our wiki inventory page [1]
please take a few moments in the next week or so to create entries for that
material in this new system [2]. Eventually, we'll decommission the old wiki

2) Also, now's a great time for people on this list with new content not
inventoried to inventory it! ;-)

3) I still would like to move to a new derivative system using Subversion. If
anyone has content who would like to do help us move in that direction, please
contact me. Rather than posting links to external sites it would be good to post
links to content in Subversion.

4) Finally, I want to start conversations with OSGeo Local groups. If you are on
one of those groups please let me know -- I'd like to get representatives for
each group so we can have more direct conversations with them.

Cheers and again a BIG THANKS to Tyler for starting our group's New Year on an
exciting new trajectory!
