>> Building on Dimitris ideas:
>> OSGeo Community Ideas
>> OSGeo Community Projects
>> Community Idea for OSGeo
>> Community Projects for OSGeo
>> I kind of like the last two because they clearly separate the projects
as NOT being "Offical" OSGeo projects but also suggest that they are
projects being generated by and for the greater OSGeo Community to support
existing OSGeo efforts in some way.
>> I like the last one because "Projects" denotes some effort where as
"Ideas" are less substanial and more like "vapor-ware", well to me anyway,
and not to detract from Dimitris' suggestions because I only got to these
ideas through his.
