We just had a meeting with NumFOCUS staff, and they suggested we should 
rename the GDAL Advisory Board to something else. The issue is with the 
Board term which is a legal term and may implicate that it is a deciding 
body, which it is not. They suggested Council, Committee, as potential 
alternatives. As committee is already used for the PSC, I think "GDAL 
Advisory Council" could be a good fit.

If there's no opposition to this, I'll change all references to it on 
the GDAL website (RFC 80, sponsorship prospectus), and ask for the 
related mailing list to be renamed/recreated.

Other news: the Fiscal Sponsorship Agreement document, which will make 
us officialy a NumFOCUS sponsored project, is now in the signing loop.
