Hi all

We're still 226 days away from Day 1, but there is a diligent crew of
people hammering away on pulling this thing together. Things are shaping up
beautifully, this is going to be a fun event!

We've taken on a fortnightly committee meeting cadence, and we last met on
Friday the 6th of April. Please find minutes for this meeting (and all
previous ones) on our wiki page
<https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/FOSS4G-SOTM-Oceania>.

A few key highlights to share:
- dates are now confirmed: 20-23 November 2018
- venue is confirmed: Old Arts Building at the University of Melbourne
- we took a survey of the community on topics of interest, and received 50
responses
- plenty of progress on forging key partnerships, and planning of scheduling,
workshops, and registration

We're aiming to keep communicating via this email list, but we're also very
close to launching our spiffy new website - check back in the next week or
so at http://foss4g-oceania.org for event updates & information. For those
interested in following the planning process as it unfolds, we're posting
minutes on the wiki <https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/FOSS4G-SOTM-Oceania>, and
working planning documents in our Google Drive folder
<https://drive.google.com/drive/u/0/folders/1QqKOCbzgfXXkBG1yHP4P5sksVAZSxnN4>
.

Heading to Locate in Adelaide this week? Some of our committee members will
be there... keep an eye out for Alex Leith, Greg Lauer, Kristy Van Putten,
Trisha Moriarty, and Adam Steer. Find Alex at GeoRabble and ask him for a
FOSS4G-SotM Oceania sticker for your laptop! (but please save one for me)

We want to hear from you! Get in touch with us:
