Thanks for your response Angelos,
I'm wondering what timezones you wish to cover from OSGeo Live's doc team?
I'm in Australia, Nelson is in Africa, I know you Astrid are in Europe. Is
there anyone you wish to loop in from America?
Ankita from The Good Docs Project might want to join. She is in India.
Nelson and I are already planning to have a video meeting (URL
<https://meet.google.com/nzy-hoks-cfb?authuser=0>) on Tuesday morning in
Europe/Africa as part of The Good Docs Project.
Would you be able to make this timeslot? I'll send Angelos and Astrid an
invite to the meeting. Others are welcome to come too if interested.
