It is my plan to sync the FDO and MapGuide agreements. These are the new 
agreements that are (a) project specific and (b) include both a 
corporate and individual versions. I just decided since FDO needed them 
now I would vet them for review here and once they are adopted by FDO, 
then I would motion to accept them in the MG PSC.
