Welcome Jan,
OSGeo needs people like you. We have oodles of volunteer software engineers
and GIS professionals, but very few people with a marketing background who
have stayed around.

So here is the challenge you face:
What do you think should and can be done which:
* Is sustainable with almost no long term financial input?
* With very few marketing volunteers (unless you recruit them yourself)?
* Adds value?
