This latter makes a lot of sense to me. This year's FOSS4G conference
will have an
"academic track" for the first time and the community response to that has
been really good; and a lot of those contributors come with in-house
I would be very happy to jump on a programme committee. I can think of
a couple of
EDINA colleagues working in open access education who would likely be
interested as well.
There are some open source platforms for marshalling contributions that
could reduce the admin load...
