Yes, having a common point for contact with industry analysts is a good
thing and yes if this gets launched I will volunteer to be one of the
participants...

Yikes!  A) Daily briefings by volunteers?  B) Gartner and such
would participate in daily briefings on stuff they consider marginal?
Less coverage != bad coverage, any more than more == good.

Are you volunteering to help?  Maybe that would be an interesting
aspect of community involvement: different projects having
input through a OSI-sponsored (or whomever) PR clearinghouse.
And not one for censoring, either; clearinghouse as in a
common point of contact for the analysts.  (Wrong word, but
I'm in haste..)
