If someone wants to take a first cut at writing something up, I will help formalizing and publishing.  (This has come up before, but no one has yet volunteered...)

Hi Jeroen,
(cc VisCom)

I totally agree - in my opinion there should have been a press
release (it can still be done). Especially in terms of the proposed
change to make it an OSGeo event. The impact of a press
release was probably underevaluated... Hopefully it will happen
asap. It is also a sort of "thank you" to the great work done by
the organizers and involved people.
