Ari, I wouldn't be offended if you moved the committee list page into this main page as a subsection.  I'm not sure of a "quick" way of referring to open source geospatial software.  "OSGeo software" certainly leaves some uncertainty as to whether it refers to only foundation projects or more generally.

How do we refer to geospatial free and open source software in this wiki? Does "OSGeo software" mean the foundation projects or is it a general term? If it refers to only the foundation projects, how do we then refer to this software in general?

I propose having separate pages for committees and their projects. There should be direct links to these pages on the main page. I have the same opinion about the www.osgeo.org pages, now I seem to have to click several times to get to committee/project pages.

I moved the events link from here and put it under promo&visibility page, where there is another link to another events page. (Maybe some merging is needed)

I suggest that we clean up this main page and use better titles. The current ones are not very descriptive.

A few questions about the sidebar, hope this is useful:

  • The Community portal link is dead, can it be removed?
  • Can the sidebar use title case since it is referring to names?
  • What is the criteria for "Current events" it seems like many things are tagged as such, that are no longer current?
