Hi Cameron,
I found OSGeo_MapBuilder.pdf in the VisCom library but the "source" is not
there. Probably it should be upadted too. I think we can require at least
this document to be therre for every project. What do you think? There is
a German language version that the German Local Chapter is taking care of.

As an add on you could make a presentation with maybe 10 slides and a list
of all productive and demo systems that you can lay your hands on. I think
that would be helpful for booths. Try the 5 minute rule.

Can you nudge one or two of your team to staff a table at FOSS4G?

Regards, Arnulf.
