Thanks Till, I grabbed the list from the wiki ( https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/OSGeo_Sponsorship_Opportunities_2018) and finally made the news announcement. See earlier email discussion <https://lists.osgeo.org/pipermail/discuss/2018-January/036971.html>.
To be cross listed sponsors need to ask, there is an example of just such email on the how to sponsor <https://www.osgeo.org/about/how-to-become-a-sponsor/> website page. -- Jody Garnett On 12 March 2018 at 03:28, Till Adams <till.ad...@fossgis.de> wrote: > Dear Jody, > > many thanks for this information!
