This request comes up yearly; and was one of the ideas for content for the osgeo website. The difficulty is finding resources to produce the content.

The trouble is just because a request is common, and makes perfect sense from a marketing open source geospatial point of view, does not imply the foundation has the marketing muscle to get it done.
