I agree that we should be giving sponsors priority regarding logo
placement. The sponsors need to be able to justify their sponsorship by
saying "I will get more customers, or reduce my costs, by sponsoring
The one minor suggestion I would add to "Goals of Sponsorship" (which is
not essential) is to reference "Quality"...
4) Make OpenLayers a more useful web mapping toolkit available by
enhancing the library...
and improving quality.
Sorry for delayed response, I've adjusted my email filters so that
personal emails should go to my inbox (instead of my openlayers folder
which I check less frequently).
