Frank, Bob:
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 
like this?
