Has FLOSS Fund run its course? <sad eyes>

Not sure you want to lose the registration link, but I take your point 
that you might want to bury it a bit. (?) [Can't put anything up, like 
what your presentation is about, without registration. (?)]

Suggested/Requested - there needs to be some mechanism to find out what 
people might want. (I get you're saying this isn't / hasn't been 
effective, over time.) [Not much different than our suggestion boxes at 
OOTC - empty for +1 years.]

Social networking (link?) - there's nothing on the site about this now, 
right? You're talking about some form of something going forward, not 
for what's there right now, yes?

Is it just me, or has attendance levels at meetings stayed around the 
same, over time. Faces gradually appear / disappear, but about the same 
number of bodies? [Different than the list, of course - lots of long 
time meeting attendees 'fading' to just list listening.]

Keeping a web site fresh take time. And individuals only have so much 
time. Should such content maintenance be morphed into some sort of 
(sub-)group effort? i.e. Share the load / not overwhelming any one person?
