We've never had a mechanism like this to gain investment in MapServer

One of the efforts of the OSGeo Fundraising Committee is to develop a
project oriented sponsorship mechanism.  That is a means by which
organizations can sponsor a particular project on which they depend,
routing the money through OSGeo for administration.

This call for feedback is basically aimed at the different projects to

current proposal is at:


Note that it is "opt in".  Projects not interested can just ignore it.
Feedback can be sent directly to me.

Actually, potential sponsors are also welcome to email me feedback on
whether it seems reasonable from their point of view!
