I'm forwarding Silke's e-mail with BOF Mobile GIS plan
proposal, below.
Note, 4-5 persons from osgeo-discuss who are interested in this project
seconded Silke's proposal.

BTW, As I understand we're moving our Mobile GIS debate from
osgeo-discuss to this list, so I think it's good to forward most
important posts here, to be able to track it easier.

Hallo folks,

since I am listed in the wiki for the organisation of the Mobile GIS
BOF [1] I thought I should make some steps to organize it indeed.

First we should agree upon a time. Since I am only at Lausanne for
the first two days (Tuesday and Wedndesday) I would like to propose
Wednesday evening for the BOF. I already edited the Wiki-page
accordingly. I know that this will be parallel to the
ka-map/Openlayers merging discussion. But since we have already 11
BOFs proposed it won't be possible to join all BOFs anyway.

Concerning possible topics: In my opinion we should use this meeting to:
- get to know each other: What is each participants interest in
  mobile GIS, what are possible contributions etc.
- find out the main challanges and obstacles to start/continue
  developement including necessary (technical) infrastructure to
  coordinate the developement
- perhaps: (depending on time an interest) discuss certain technical
  issues. Some are already listed on the wiki and we can possibly
  discuss a subset of it.

I am very interested to hear your ideas!

Many greetings,
