[Web Comm] Meeting follow up scope of webcomm

We're responsible for Web graphic design.  VisCom is responsible for print.
Not sure how I feel about writing guidelines.  What did you have in mind?
As far as translations go, we will be putting in the framework for the main OSGeo site, which may or may not be shared by projects at their choice.  Those projects that choose to share the framework will be able to give their volunteers access to translate project pages.  Those projects that don't need/want the OSGeo framework will be on their own to enable translation mechanism and access for their volunteers.
Beyond providing the framework, I believe that we will not be taking an active role in maintaining project-specific pages.  Our role is more of an umbrella, providing marketing materials that link the various projects together and make the OSGeo-soup clearer for all.  We will have to round up our own volunteers for umbrella page translation.

These sections/deliverables are:


    * logo, check!
    * fonts, unclear
    * graphic design, is this viscomm responsibility?
    * website map, optimize "workflow" for target users, pending
    * writing guidelines, probably per content type, unset
