I just added FOSS4G submission as a topic for the IRC chat agenda next
Monday. You may want to read through this mail for preparation. Maybe
there is interest in a comparison / shot out which would require us to
do some preparation.

Abstracts for FOSS4G are due next Thursday 15 April 2010 and I'm hoping 
that we will see abstracts for:

* LiveDVD lightening overview
* WMS/WFS/WCS Shootout
* Desktop comparison
* Browser Client comparison
* Database comparison

I predict that these presentations will be by far the most popular 
presentations of the conference. Further, I'm expecting to incorporate 
results onto the LiveDVD. They will be a lot of effort to prepare, 
partly because they will need a team of project developers to contribute 
to it, and consequently, unless we get our act together soon, I suspect 
that no-one will submit presentations for some of the topics above.

So I encourage people to respond to the following targeted email 
threads, noting your intention to help and be part of one of the 
presentation teams. (Note, the presentation will be the easy bit, the 
hard bit will be collating the material for the presentation).

A good team for these comparison projects will consist of:

* a representative from each project in the comparison. These types of 
comparisons will be the first place new users will go when researching 
software, so are well worth participating in.
* users who have used more than one of the applications
* anyone involved in related comparison reviews, or development of 
feature tables or similar
* coordinator/"get it done" people who can pull it all together
* people who can speak well, and efficiently. (You will have lots of 
material to present is a short time)
