>> Hi everyone,
>> We want to improve the coverage of the Open Data Census (
>> http://census.okfn.org/ <http://census.okfn.org/>) and verify existing
>> contributions to ensure information is still up to date and reliable.
>> We need your help in doing this! There are 2 aspects:
>> Contributing on countries where there is missing information - you
>> can do this right now, just visit http://census.okfn.org/c<http://census.okfn.org/countries/>
>> Reviewing existing contributions - you will need access to the review
>> spreadsheet<https://docs.google.com/a/okfn.org/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AiWM2KV46Zt0dGxMVVo3c3JKZ2U0NHVzZVozSEJwdXc#gid=0>(just let us know and we can add you)
>> We would also like to appoint Open Data Census editors who would oversee
>> a country or region.
>> This would involve a relatively small amount of time over the next
>> couple of weeks (until June 12th) and would involve both adding
>> information yourself and mobilizing input and expertise from colleagues
>> to contribute.
>> If you are interested in being an editor please just reply to this mail
>> (this way we can coordinate efforts). Or, simply go to
>> http://census.okfn.org/countries/ add information directly!
>> We look forward to hearing from you!
