See ticket about reaching out to Projects: https://git.osgeo.org/gitea/osgeo/todo/issues/11

  • No feedback came back from the projects: FDO, OSSIM, Geomajas, MapFish, MapGuide

Some projects like FDO, MapGuide are active in the codebase but have not much activity for an operational PSC.

Discussion about scaling inactive projects back to OSGeo community program. This would need a change in the bylaws.

Board postponed this topic.

Discussion about MapFish. Contact person Elic Lemoine left the project. Emmanuel Belo is the new contact person. No code activity since 2011, but activity in a new fork and print module. Emmanuel Belo was asked by Anglos to report back from the project, so the board will wait for his report.
