So, motivated by the OSGeo Project Sponsorship program, Chris did a 
great job of putting together a document that describes the potential 
sponsorship opportunities with OpenLayers.


This document describes a few things:
1) our intent to seek sponsorship via the OSGeo Project Sponsorship program;
2) high level goals for use of sponsorship funds; and
3) details on uses, benefits, and the process.

John has raised questions about having the OSGeo manage our sponsorship 
program versus having some other entity manage the program.  I think we 
have agreed to treat this question separately - to entertain suggestions 
on alternative methods of managing the sponsorship program after we 
agree on the core goals.

I would like to call a vote specifically on the document linked above. 
The issue we're voting on looks something like this:

If we agree to pursue sponsorship for OpenLayers via the OSGeo Project 
Sponsorship program, the PSC believes that the sponsorship document 
referenced [1] adequately describes the goals, intended uses, and 
potential benefits of project sponsorship.

Thanks for voting.

My vote is +1.
