(I reply to the new list address)

Also in OSGeo only a few things need a vote. Since we are
used to the meriocraty model and the "do-it" model, we should
proceed like that.

This rather useless comment is moreover a list test :-)


PS: I have subscribed with both my itc.it and my gmail account
to have mails at both ends - feel free to do the same if it helps for you.
So don't be confused, just reply to the list address as usual.
