This meeting reviewed the Tour Hosts / OSGeo contract. Most decisions were incorporated into the contact and have not been noted in these notes.

Tour hosts have probably also taken minutes, which can be reference (TBD add link).

pg 4: We aim not to use volunteers as paid students are more cost effective (based on 2007 experience).

 How does GST apply to an overseas company? Please use a concrete example.
