Hi All-

   At the just-over Where 2.0 OSGeo booth, Mr. Nathan Vaughn Kelso 
stopped by from the Washington Post. He and others are behind the 
cartographically lovely Natural Earth data set. The Natural Earth team 
I think they are pretty happy with the results, and have received 
critical acclaim...


   So Mr. Kelso inquired if and how we, OSGeo would like to host or 
promote the set... Apparently a minimal set of all vector, plus two 
basic raster, is around 670 mb.  (the whole set of rasters brings it up 
to 4-6 GB ?)

   seems like a great fit to me... Ideas ?

   best regards
