1. If I am busy doing C and 170+ issues someone else need to help with exploring and displaying themes
7. Adding more CPTs?

2. In general, think it is OK to add to cache but not to GMT core since it is not generic and not tied to data we provide

2. Awaiting for UNAVCO to make a move
3. Other prospects?
