Thanks for the response Frank.

I believe I use "surveyor" to log into the wiki. If I have two (2)
userids, then I should delete the sunburnedsurveyor one.

I think I did that once to edit the page here:

communicate in IRC while you are getting started."
That sounds like it would work.

Is it possible we should just publishing via that site rather than
via the www.osgeo.org drupal site?"
To be honest, I have no idea. OJS was set up by Tyler. I found the
site difficult to use in a lot of scenarios, and I haven't used it at
all for the last two (2) volumes. I don't think it is a good idea to
move forward with that site because can't rely on Tyler for tech
support like I could before.
I suppose if I learn Drupal I might be able to help with other OSGeo
web site maintenance tasks. This probably makes the most sense.
It isn't that important to have the Journal articles posted on the
web, I just thought it would be a nice extra. I guess I posted here to
see if I could get the gears of the web committee moving again, more
that for any other reason. I don't want to be a burden, and I'm
willing to learn a bit if I can help out. I know nothing about Drupal,
