Kate or anyone,
Can you please outline the difference between People interested, Members & Board
Members (board members are fairly self explanatory) in HOT.
I seem to have missed the conversation outlining the purpose of a members list
and what function a member is expected to perform. I see from the notes of the
HOT meeting at SOTM (which i could not attend) that the list is based on the
OSGEO nominated members model.
Why do members have to be nominated - it just seems like an extra level of
complexity/confusion/exclusion to people who want to help.
