[mapserver-dev] Proposed budget expenditures...

My honest thoughts when thinking on the MapServer part is to put the 
amount into a 'release manager' role for 2020, and that would include 
the 8.0 release.  (thinking along the lines of Daniel's great message 
from 2020-01-10 where the release manager helps with the initial release 
plus point/bugfix releases)  So I guess my thinking is that the effort 
towards the 7.6.0 release helps us build towards the big 8.0 release. 
(the part in my head that I haven't said here yet out loud is that I 
also plan/hope to fill the 8.0 release manager role as well, as I see 
all of the team effort the past month or year spent as actually working 
towards the 8.0 release).

My explanation is not as clear or concise as Daniel's ha.
