Hi Reese, my thinking on where to put the OSGeo Glossary page has moved.

Options I'd consider would be:
"OSGeo Glossary Committee"
"OSGeo Lexicon Committee"
something else?
This would lead to us setting up a head wiki page like:

Also, have a look at how some of the other committee pages are set up, as
linked from:

Cheers, Cameron
