I agree with Even. I think the OSGeo Service provider directory and the 
MapServer Service Provider page are two complementary services to the 
community that serve a slightly different purpose. I think the proposed 
MapServer Service Provider page will be more useful to our users in 
finding people who can really help them. Whereas the OSGeo one is more 
of an open listing where the quality and usefulness of the results can 
be discussed.

Note that there is already a "see also" section with a link to the OSGeo 
search tool at the bottom of the proposed draft MapServer service 
providers page.
