	Hi Kevin,
	Great! Thank you for the interest.  Are you comfortable with
LaTex layout already?

	As we get some more editors signed up we'll have to start our
own list, I think, and then discuss further there.  If you have any
ideas send them our way.

	I've added you to the wiki page for the Newsletter, under 5.2.
You should register for an account if you don't have one already.



	p.s. Are you in Toronto region?

department.  Either software will be okay with me.  Let me know how I
can be involved.

the Discuss list

since this was on the

hoping that some of

Right now it's the

myself trying to get it

can't (nor want) to do

reviewers, but we

some writing or
			contribute some articles.

think we can do a 
			great job on this first volume of OSGeo News.

open and tell me if

you probably have an

			Hi all,
			As you may be aware, last year the GRASS News
production offered to
			transition their great production into a brand
new OSGeo Newsletter.
			Although branded as OSGeo, all open source
projects are welcome to be

			For those of you who are unfamiliar with the
last volume, have a look
			at this:
http://osgeo.org/files/news/GRASS_OSGeo_News_vol4.pdf (5.3MB).  As

			Well, now is the time to get a new team together
to help make a great
			production.  You are invited to be part of that
team!  Want some 
			exercise for your writing skills?  Would you
like to get some more
			exposure for your project?  Want to learn the
ins and outs of some
			publication software?  Or do you just want to
help spread the word

			There are several positions available for any
volunteer who would
			help to coordinate collecting articles, writing
content, reviewing
			content, helping with layout or graphics, and
more.  Want to sign up
			just for one volume or to test the waters first?
That is fine too. 
			Please see the Newsletter wiki page for a list
of open positions and
			categories for content that need editors:

questions or concerns please
			just let me know!  As we will work as a team,
please do not be shy

			After the team is gathered and production
deadlines are finalised,
			then we will make a more general call for
contributors.  If you
			already have something that you would like to
contribute, you are

			Hope you will join us in putting this together!
