Re: Draft board report for October 2018
Can you add the following to activity:
Julian Hyde attended ApacheCon on Montreal and gave two talks about Calcite. One of these talks was part of the day-long Geospatial track sponsored by the Open Geospatial Consortium (OGC), and triggered some good interactions with other Apache projects that are doing Geospatial work; there seems to be growing momentum for these projects to increase involvement with the OGC.
