Cameron please check meeting history; your current suggestions are counter

I understand you would like the osgeo live team to be respected (they are)
and combine forces long term to reduce overall effort. This team of
volunteer is focused on a very short three week deadline - and only has
time for your help.

- we are creating a template for information sheets (geoforall and osgeo
only at this time). Project teams  and others are welcome to use this
- the forms are for the website/rebranding
- long term maintenance is out of scope; project teams will have edit
accesss to the website.
