FW: [VisCom] Staff plan for OSGeo booth at FOSS4G (third serve)

I just put myself up on the staffing plan, as well as my two direct 
reports.  One reason I didn't do this earlier (besides being offline) is 
that it's hard to commit to specific times right now.  I have no idea 
what my schedule is going to be like there, and I felt like I didn't 
want to 'commit'.  (also there's no way I'm going to be there at 7:30) 
So I just sprinkled us at some random times.  It might be nice to have a 
section that just says 'I'll be there and I can help out, but I don't 
necessarily know my timing'.  Everyone's just going to be there, so some 
people might just be fine with being assigned to times.

Also I felt Where 2.0 worked out just fine with few set times (or were 
there times I wasn't aware of?)  I just used it as a homebase, showed up 
there when other things weren't going on.
