It is your trac - so if you want to close it go ahead. Or if you want
confirmation that the person responsible for the request is "happy" you can
ask them to review and close it :D

Sure, how about this for a proposal:
- link to the project home page (nothing else will do for the projects)
- have an (i) information link that links to the OSGeo live page

This combines the best of both worlds - what do you think?

Sounds good, the other way to clean it up is hold an IRC meeting - people
will attend, or send their regrets - either way your committee is reduced
to active participants.

Thanks for the hustle on these things Ian - it is very important that we
enable our new board members. So glad to see the content getting updated,
news announcements being made, etc...
