This is a good idea. I'd prefer to see a separate mailing list though. The list could help foster a growing industry. Bruce Bannerman Frank Warmerdam <[EMAIL PROTECTED]> Sent by: [EMAIL PROTECTED] 25/01/08 08:12 AM Please respond to OSGeo Discussions <email@example.com> To OSGeo <firstname.lastname@example.org> cc Subject [OSGeo-Discuss] Job Postings / Job Wanted Folks, The OSGeo Service Provider Directory was implemented in response to frequent questions I have received from folks trying to find a consultant or integrator they could contact for implementing foss4g solutions. Today (and certainly not for the first time) I received an email from someone trying to find potential employees with skills in a variety of OSGeo projects. My question is whether there is something we can do to address this need - and the corresponding need for folks who would like to find potential jobs that would take advantage of their foss4g knowledge and interest. Would it be acceptable to have job postings on this list? Should we try and setup a job postings / job wanted mailing list? Would it be likely to get enough subscribers and postings to make this worth while? I think of this as closely related to the recent issue about announcing foss4g related products and services. There are folks who want to know and folks who need to get their message out. But how do we put them together in a way that is likely to get a critical mass? Basically - it helps our goal of foss4g uptake to ensure that folks can make these commercial / employment contacts.
