During SAC's early days, the focus was on coordinating OSGeo's collaboration with
 
http://www.telascience.org.  The ultimate outcome of these activities was OSGeo's use
 
of the "TelaScience blades" for things like http://download.osgeo.org, providing
 
resources for the GeoData committee, and providing various resources for member projects. 
 
  
== Mid to Late 2006 Activities ==
 
 
By the middle of 2006, it was becoming clear that CollabNet was not going to meet
 
the organization's needs or fit the organization's workflow and we would be needing to
 
move off of CollabNet and on to our own platform.  Activities in this time period related to
 
preparing for the migration and taking on new members to help with the effort.  By coordinating
 
with other committees such as WebCom, PEER1 was decided to be our hosting provider, with
 
two capable machines being requisitioned.
