== OGC/OSGeo meet up ==
OGC and OSGeo have always been strongly linked, from our common roots in the early open source geospatial community, our 2008 MoU, and the ongoing benefits we continue to realize from each other's activities. As both organisations continue to lead at the top of their respective fields, are there ways that we can work more closely and provide greater support for each other's work?
This BoF is intended as an informal meet up to hear people's thoughts and suggestions.

== OSGeo-Live ==
Ideas for [http://live.osgeo.org OSGeo-Live] BOF (which might spill into a [http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/FOSS4G_2013_Code_Sprint Code Sprint] with sufficient interest):
* Discuss strategy for improving translation process
* Work out a strategy for printing and distributing DVDs / USBs, and paying for them. The hard part is working out how to process 50+ requests for DVDs per year.
* Many of the quickstarts need review/tweaks. A day of people running quickstarts, reporting issues, capturing screen shots, would greatly benefit the project. It would be a great introduction for someone to both OSGeo software, and the Open Source development process, as well as being a very valuable contribution to the community.
* How to create PDF documentation.
* PostCards

Time Slot and location: Friday, 1-1:30pm, GeoCamp (marquee)
The ELOGeo platform has been set up as a means for the community to share learning resources for FOSS GIS under a Creative Commons 3 licence. We at the University of Nottingham have some additional funding to work on functionality and design of the system, and we're interested in some community views on this. Please come along to say what you think!  (Not usually a problem in OSGeo...) We'll have some design ideas for you to think about, and questions about the content & access.

GeoExt brings together the geospatial know how of OpenLayers with the user interface savvy of Ext JS to help you build powerful desktop style GIS apps on the web with JavaScript. With the development of OpenLayers 3, does it make sense to create GeoExt 3 ?
* GeoExt 3 ?
* Possible alternatives ?
