Okay, it sounds like you've already discussed it then.  I was just
commenting on the appearance as someone who hasn't stayed informed.

I don't think so.  I'm more focused on the Conference Committee.

Also, my Marketing ideas are not that sophisticated.  I've long been a
proponent of no-cost or subsidized-cost OSGeo Logo materials (i.e.
OSGeo should fund the printing and distribution of as many OSGeo
laptop stickers as people are willing to put on laptops.  And to some
extent t-shirts too.  Also booth material for Local Chapters.)  I've
seen big impacts come from relatively small investments like funding
stickers and pizza at Local Chapter meetings.

Best regards, Eli
