Hi Delphine (and Andre),

Not sure if you saw this, but Sheila sent out a proposal for the  
first meeting of the new OSAF Board (which is scheduled or the end of  
next week - Th/Fri).

This is the meeting I thought might be a good opportunity to pull  
together a first try at a "State of User Community" Report.

Perhaps just a high level summary of recent hot topics and trends in  
participation levels (using markmail's graphs?). Any thoughts?
