[Viscom-dev] OSGeo Newsletter

I've started a wiki outline for the next edition of the newsletter, hopefully we can follow some sort of template.

Please edit/modify this umbrella page:
http://wiki.osgeo.org/index.php/Newsletter

I put together a general outline of the kinds of things in the newsletter - these are suggestions or observations from last volume and are able to change. But I wanted to identify them somehow so we can start to put names and article titles beside them.

Add and details or workflow ideas here:
http://wiki.osgeo.org/index.php/Newsletter_Volume_1

We need to identify which areas we need more volunteers - I put some ideas in the section:
http://wiki.osgeo.org/index.php/Newsletter#Volunteer_Needs

Then we can take that list and mail it out to the broader community to solicit help.

Any ideas or discussion??

great - that's very good for organising OSGeo 1/2007.
I changed bits and pieces on the wiki-pages.
We have to discuss the context of each section, to avoid confusion and then
assign each section to one editor.
Tyler, I would propose you as OSGeo-Newsletter head, who announces release,
call for articles and asks each Edt. to be ready in time.... not a lot of
work, "just" to keep the overview ,-)

I would feel more comfortable if the majority of OSGeo-Edt. are not GRASS
users/developers, this might lead to a wrong impression in the OSGeo
community. However I think that this bias will not hamper a broad diversity
of articles.
