No, I just reasoned that all committees should have an "info sheet" on Drupal (like the software projects). No reason really (blushes). I thought that formally the member list must be in the "stable" section of the OSGeo web site and that the Wiki due to its transient character could never serve that purpose.

Great. First I mess up things then I over formalize. Eventually I will find the right way and turn left. ...we could at least protect those few Wiki pages with information that has official character. But we don't *have* to do that either...

But from there http://www.osgeo.org/committees.html goes 404

This will turn (apparent) into official and we have resolved yet another issue.
