I'll try to refrain from an opinion.
 If we do publish these I really think that they should be a different content type so that they can be found better.  Like "Case Study" or "Success Story".
I'd really prefer to see stories on the OSGeo site that show how multiple OSGeo applications can be used together for a solution.  When I initially proposed putting project-specific case studies on the main site, quite a few folks thought that these should be maintained by the individual projects on their own sites.

Subject: [Webcom] new spotlight?

Hi all,
MapGuide Open Source is being used in a cool project (see below).  
I'm thinking this would make a good spotlight and would add some 
welcome new content on our front page of the web site.  I know our 
spotlights have been specific people, but why not a project as well?  
What do you think?
