    Sehr geehrter Herr Neteler,

    ich wende mich an Sie weil ich hoffe Sie können mir weiterhelfen (dont panic ;-))

    Wir haben seit einigen Wochen Qgis auf dem Microsoft Surface im Einsatz.
    Seit heute auch mit 2.6.
    Wir sind mit der Kombination sehr, sehr glücklich!!!
    Wenn Interesse besteht könnte ich einen kurzen Bericht mit Bildern, Screenshots, “Benchmarks” auf “Spearfischbasis” verfassen.
    Nun zu meiner eigentlichen Frage: Wer wäre für so ein Ansinnen der richtige Ansprechpartner beim Projekt?

    Mit freundlichen Grüßen
    Stefan W. Kauling
