I've taken the liberty of adding a more meaningful subject line.

Over the last week we have had some refinement of the transition plans.
Autodesk is looking to contract a system administrator for 3 months to do the
bulk of the transition work, and Bob Bray at Autodesk has agreed to act as
project lead on the transition.

The contract sys admin will likely be taking care of the OpenLDAP setup
rather than Howard having to do it.  So we will need to consult actively with
Bob and the system administrator before we can deploy the Membership
Application and other permissions management stuff I spoke about earlier.

I do think it still makes a lot of sense to go ahead with a preliminary
design.  We are still planning to use Drupal for the portal, and I assume
it will be an evolved form of the current instance.  So arranging access to
that with Tyler would still be good.

Bob - please consider the Indictrans team a resource, especially for technical
Drupal work.  On the conference call there was also some discussion of having
the contract system administrator spend some time educating us on how the
new system works.  I hope this will include the Indictrans team who I hope
will be an ongoing resource for administering OSGeo infrastructure.
