> release about the letter we're sending to the 25 European Environment
> Ministers who will decide the future of the European Spatial Data
> Infrastructure directive (INSPIRE).
> http://publicgeodata.org/Press_Release_Council_Letter
> It has quotes from myself and Markus in it, and mentions both of our
> OSGeo roles, and has an explanatory sentence taken from the notes at
> the bottom with a link to the osgeo site.
> The letter itself is very similar to the one that we sent to the
> Environment Committee in Parliament back in March, which Markus signed
> and the OSGeo Board approved a statement of support for - it just adds
> a paragraph describing what happened since and has questions at the
> end. This version is just coming from Public Geodata's 6000+
> supporters, under Benjamin Henrion's signature. So OSGeo's only 
> involvement here is its directors being quoted in the Press Release.
> If anyone has issues with this I would appreciate it if you could let

> are holding up on this version being "approved"; ideally they should
> be done tonight and this PR sent at 8am UTC+2 Wednesday; can hang on
> til Thursday if nesc but shouldn't leave it later.
