Hello there!

As far as I know, there isn't any simple or single way to communicate
with the people who use GPS devices with Free/Libre/Open Source
Software (FLOSS) or the developers of these programs. I've tried to
find one, including the osgeo mailing lists but haven't been able to
find any suitable.
Many projects don't have a list at the moment (see the link below) so
I thought a common list would be very useful to share information,
announce the releases, let people send their patches for others to
test as well as announce alpha and beta releases and so on..

Would osgeo be able to host this floss-geo list?

I think this would fit well in the mission of OSgeo and it would be
great to have some non-profit OS-oriented organization behind it (and
not to start a google group..) and osgeo would be a perfect match with
the interest in the geospatial technologies, data and tools.

For more information, list of just some easy-to-find projects that I'd
like to invite to join and the original idea, see
