  The funny thing is that Geosparc's business plan is entirely based on 
a properly balanced open source project. A good democratic community 
process is in Geosparc's best interest, as it can give more assurances 
that the needs of the many are met. This in turn should result in more 
opportunities for Geosparc (and other companies using Geomajas).
