[OpenLayers-Dev] PSC Vote on Sponsorship Doc

Why don't we call this first vote (and this thread) closed. (Not really 
meant to be a question.)

The proposal went out over 2 days ago [1], and we've had no -1 votes.

That means (to me) that the PSC agrees that:

"If we agree to pursue sponsorship for OpenLayers via the OSGeo Project
Sponsorship program, the PSC believes that the sponsorship document
referenced [2] adequately describes the goals, intended uses, and
potential benefits of project sponsorship."

Obviously the meat of this discussion involves convincing anyone who 
objects that the OSGeo Project Sponsorship program is a good way forward.

Let's begin a new thread for that discussion.


[1] Two days and one hour.
