As your VisCom Chair, I'd like to formally ask all the VisCom members to
please contact Arnulf immediately if they are attending -- or are
considering attending -- the FOSS4G or EuroOSCON events.

(I regret that I'm not able to attend this year.  I will be cheering you
all on, however, and following things via IRC.)

As she rightly points out below, our participation at events like this
is very important, and of course FOSS4G is perhaps our premier event of
the season.  We're a volunteer-based organization, so it's up to "us" to
make these things happen.

Plus, you do get one of the Famous and Much-Coveted Black Shirts.

Hello again,
Jody suggested to use our great new Contacts homepage to poke project 
chairs more directly. MapGuide and Mapbender currently are the only 
projects with full representation at the OSGeo booth, MapServer and 
GeoTools have some representation (wouldn't this be a shame to the other


Here we go again:

Just to make sure. We want the booth to be a thriving place of 
communication and interaction. This is why we got this whole Foundation 
thingy done in the first place, didn't we? This staff plan is not 
designed by others for others, its you - OSGeo. Remember?

[1] (large X) does not refer to shirt sizes but to the legend of the 
booth staff plan in the Wiki. Yes, you will have to open this URL to 
find out what this means:

While I am at it: I checked the docs in VisCom and there have not been 
any changes to the flyers. If you need help, please ask. If you feel the

flyers are fine, fine.

Booth staff is entitled to get one of those highly desirable OSGeo 
t-shirt in any size that you request until Friday 13:47 GMT.

The same applies to the EuroOSCON where participation until now is also 
below sensor threshold.

you are near to almighty. Please come or make others come.

Best Regards,

just to bother some more i added a return receipt and high level 
priority message tag...
