Replace SPD self registration with moderated registration

Per discussion with Arnulf it is proposed that we move from self-registration for the Service Provider Directory to a moderated approach. The intent is to improve the quality of entry and give a chance for interaction with service providers.

Basically we would setup a mailing list with one or more SPD editors. Folks wanting to be listed would email this list with their request and details. An SPD editor would then create (or update) the corresponding SPD entry. If there are concerns about the accurancy or appropriateness of the proposed entry it would be discussed on this spd mailing list.

In addition to agreeing to this change in approach, some changes in the PHP (and possibly the database) would be needed to remove general self-registration, to disassociate SPD entries from osgeo userids (presumably) and to allow SPD editors to add and update entries.

Service provider directory responsibility should be taken by

Open questions:

a) Anyone up for a bulk migration? Or should we build up the list again b) Should we let service providers be editors and create their own page? Advantage is they need an osgeo id for that ...

Alternative would be something similar to what GeoForAll? has requested, a form for service providers to fill in, and a volunteer responsible for review/approve submitted service providers
