Cool; do try and find Martin Desruisseaux; he is one of the pillars of 
the Java community (just hard to find and talk to).

I missed this one; or did not understand it. Perhaps I still do not?

So to drag you back on track:
- anything fun on the standards side of things?
- can you hunt down the GeoAPI working group and see if they need any 
help setting up
- how do I go about asking for one of the foundations OGC memberships; 
so I can help kick GeoAPI back into official status w/ respect to OGC

[-1] A footnote? In an email?
