  I just visited the site and I am excited by your initiative. I would 
like to know if I can contribute some how to this.  What kind of 
contributions are you looking for ?

Just a bit of background on myself : I currently work for DM Solutions 
group and have been involved as a developer with Mapserver/php-mapscript 
and other client tools around Mapserver.  I try to follow most mailing 
list and initiatives related to GIS in Africa and also initiatives on 
osgeo like the international discussing list.

  Please let me know.

  Best Regards,
