We have some short term things to do the website (trac or email?)

1. update the "about" page

you can see the discussion on the board list, will be done in a couple of

2. remove the education committee

- https://trac.osgeo.org/osgeo/ticket/1613

3. Clean up the committee list
4. Replace project pages with links to project home page


And we will need to discuss a bit more about the mid term items. The board
is finalizing the 2016 strategic plan, if you check the meeting minuets you
can see a number of website items are already listed as a high priority

a) From November Ian was interested in leading a work party to update the
version of Drupal used
b) replace service providers page, broken down by participation (see qgis
and geoserver <http://geoserver.org/support/> pages)
d) get better at sponsor logos (rotate gold sponsor logos on the main page

I have already talked with Ian a bit how this can go down, while OSGeo will
have a budget to work with this year we want to ensure that each initiative
is volunteer led. Either by a short-term "work party" (strict timeframe /
budget) or by a committee (such as webcomm).

I recommend co-ordinating on webcomm, and breaking out into work parties
for specific goals (it should help recruit volunteers if they know the
activity will end in a couple weeks).
