It is good that 2.7 is out. Thanks to all of you who where involved and
all the bug fixing that is going on. 2.7 will also be on the OSGeoLive 4.5
which is a good thing and a good promotion  for the project.

The release notice is on the way. kmq is going to send it and has to
discuss on etopic first. It hopefully will come on monday.

If monday is not a good meeting time we could look for another day and time.

More promotion for Mapbender would be fine. The new www.geoportal.rlp.de 
is online with version 2.7. I think this could be worth a report. Maybe we
could ask Armin Retterath about this.

The CfP for the FOSS4G is open. We could discuss what we want to present
on FOSS4G and apply for a presentation. That would be very good.
The workshop was different. I thought we do not know what to present in
September whether 3.0 will be already there.
