Responding to Astrid's request for information about printing:

> print-ready 
The PDF in the above print-ready folder is Letter sized for Boston; is this
size useful for you or do you need this content in A4? We revised some
content based on the fosss4ge code-sprint and fixed many small glitches
during review before Boston printing.

That sounds correct but we should check:
- checking osgeo_a4.pdf history
Jul 13 modification
- checking osgeo_letter.pdf
history shows Aug 12 modification
Can you check the modification date in the print-ready folder to see if
they are newer?

Yes - that is why we are reviewing in email :)
I am afraid I am confused on these, there were several options of different
sizes being sent around for review.
4. Logos OSGeo

Do you think? Those logos are specific to the incubation process. I was
thinking that I would create a sponsors folder with instructions and
materials for sponsors.
Sorry, on wednesdays when marketing planning takes place I am always still

Working is good; is there a time you can meet to review component 3
deliverables? You may also have more options to meet directly with Marc and
