Hamish et al et al,

Raf (CCed) is coordinating efforts to have a local free geodataset
ready for the conference, with as much heterogeneus data as possible
in a given geographic domain near Barcelona. Dealing with public
organizations is neither easy, not fast, and gets worse when asking
for a license change towards freedom. We cannot guarantee anything so
far, but we're at it, at in the right track. Thanks Raf, once more!

In the meanwhile, let's

a) Try to compile a Lucid distro working with the 2010
workshop&tutorial apps -- need someone to step forward and coordinate
(Cameron? Alex?) - afraid of continuous cross-postings (as this one,
for instance :S).

b) LOC to decide if we are going for USB or DVD, based on budget
viability -- LOC going through abstract selection nightmare right now,
so please be patient :)
