Hi Adrian,

OSGeo's 'in crowd' is anyone who volunteers their time to grow the
community.  This includes you.  You are known in the OSGeo community as
much as anyone else.  You have a voice.  Everyone is listening.

Maybe instead of pointing out the problems, you can help make the
changes needed.  (my experience in this community is that it is always
much easier to critique work already done, but most will not actually
sit down through the long process of making changes and following
through)  Prove me wrong on this please.
