What shortcomings are these? I think you all are doing a fine job
tackling these difficult questions -- especially if you consider the
inane chatter that goes on within the international OSM talk list --
and I am proud to be able to cheer you on from the sidelines. :)

I would also like to point out that, to the best of my recollection,
the workshops that Mikel and I were graciously invited to facilitate
in 2008 were all organized and funded by local institutions in India,
with the overarching support of FSF India. Of course, I invite you to
draw your own conclusions, but I recall thinking that this arrangement
worked well at the time.
