Good to see.  I'm looking at a smallish govt project atm that /may/ be
able to throw some resources at it, providing we can be sure to get what
the client needs.  wms and wfs-t will be key for us, though we haven't
got as far as a formal FRS yet.

I'll have a good look at the wiki and see what I can add over the next
few days or weeks.
