[Marketing] OSGeo email address

I am one of the "ole' VisCom members"
and just now added myself to the new member list at Marketing. I don't 
attend Marketing IRC meetings regularly but take care of OSGeo Marketing 
at the Local Chapter level. Last weekend we (Arnulf and me) had a 
meeting with GAV e.V. (operator of FreeGIS.org and account holder for 
local OSGeo/FOSSGIS funds) to further formalize "OSGeo DACH". Besides 
these activities I officially represent OSGeo at several events like 
Intergeo, AGIT, Geo MV Forum and others when OSGeo operates a booth, 
etc. I am also member of the organizing team of the German language 
FOSSGIS conference (http://www.fossgis.de).

Currently I do all of this using my WhereGroup email address which is 
not really appropriate. To have a more official and at the same more 
neutral background to do these things I wanted to request for an OSGeo 
email address for the communication with the contact persons of the 
conferences or the trade shows. It should have an official ring, I guess 
torsten.brassat at osgeo.org or tbrassat at osgeo.org or brassat at osgeo.org 
should be fine. I have not found any kind of official document 
describing who is entitled to operate with an OSGeo mail address, so 
maybe this needs to be further discussed.

I also suggest that we design a signature for official OSGeo mail 
addresses to further build the corporate identity.
Thanks for your efforts,

Torsten Brassat
