Great news is that the MapServer Project Steering Committee (PSC) is now meeting monthly, to get the momentum going and continue the great work for the MapServer community. Note that anyone can attend the meeting, and feedback from all users and developers is very important. The first meeting was held yesterday, and a summary is below.
