Thank you Chris for organizing this event and for reaching out to this 
mailing list.

I feel there is strong interest from our community to participate on the 
development of these new standards, and I know that there is ongoing 
work towards this from some OSGeo members, so I am sure you will see 
some of us in Ft Collins.

Let's make an OGC/WFS/STAC Catalog session during the Bonn Code Sprint: 
I realized that the Orleans OGC TC meeting is on the same week as the 
Bonn code sprint. Perhaps we could all join a video call session during 
that week?
