Rather than I (who don't hold a formal position in ILUGD any more), I'd 
recommend Andrew, Gora and Kishore to represent FOSSCOMM in case the old 
guard is not available for whatever reason.  All three are clued 
regarding the issues with FOSS and open standards, articulate, committed 
to the principles of freedom and openness and, most important, have the 
ability to put their points across with tact and diplomacy, two words 
that don't exist in my dictionary :)

Gora, Kishore, Andrew: please indicate if you're willing to pick up the 
ball and run with it.
