Arnulf, good idea to have a WFS-T we can all connect to. How about we publish the URL before the demo so that we can set up and test our clients, then reset the data at the start of the conference. (Mike Adair is setting up a Mapbuilder client.) Arnulf Christl wrote: Our 2ct for the

I am going to kick off a general discussion with a story, one that I would like to see prevented ... You arrive at FOSS4G and are really looking forward to showing off your new (Web, KML, mashup, gvSig, PostGis, OpenLayer, MapServer, GeoServer, GeoNetwork, 3D, or even DB2 and Oracle).
