Thanks for stirring the coals on this. To get started, I thought to
approach the gvSIG team, and ask to interview one of their developers.
GvSIG is an unusual FOSS project in that they're more or less fully
funded by a government body. Development has been very quick, and as you
know they're in OSGeo incubation now.
Does this sound like a suitable topic for getting the spotlights going?
In addition, in order to keep the pace of 1-2 new spotlight items each
month we should collate a list of topics in advance, with a rough
schedule of when they are to appear, and who's going to write each one.
Where is the best place for maintaining a "stay tuned for..." schedule
