Incubation Status report for Q2 2013.

TLDR: Waiting on the board for GeoMoose announcement, and listing project officers for GeoMoose and GeoServer. Rasdaman is getting close to completing incubation requirements. gvSig has a new mentor, remaining incubation projects show no progress, with dropping TEAM Engine being discussed. Landon has some ideas for promoting OSGeo Labs projects.

rasdaman

The Rasdaman community seems to be past the technical hurdles of the code review and license checks, and is now working on open governance procedures.

(Bruce) My general observations on the project for the last period are:

  • Overall, the project appears to be in good shape, with 26 new user registrations this month alone.
  • Project activity has increased with a marked increase in email traffic on the developer and user lists.
  • Considerable activity is occuring related to documenting and fine tuning of software release processes, including tying these to processes relating to the use of git.
  • Work is underway to support git branching with a view towards maintained releases.
  • Work is under way to support regression testing for OGC compliance e.g. WCPS and WCS.
  • Work is underway to improve the testing framework.
  • Rasdaman's CRS name resolver has been deployed as OGC's official CRS name resolver.
  • I'm starting to see future planning activities being presented to the Rasdaman Community for comment. This is good to see.
  • We still don't have documented processes describing a range of factors, however I anticipate that these will come in time. Some examples are:
    • Project Governance and processes
    • Who is on the Project Steering Committee? How are PSC members (s)elected, replaced etc? What are the responsibilities of the PSC?
    • What Code review is expected for new contributions? Who does this review?
  • How are Commiters selected? What are their responsibilities? How is commit status reviewed?
    • The project has a reasonably well defined roadmap [2]. What I'm not clear on yet is e.g.:
    • How was this roadmap has been defined?
    • What community review process is used to arrive at the roadmap?
    • How were relative priorities determined?
    • How are new priorities balanced against existing priorities?

TEAM Engine

  • mentor: Justin Deolivera
  • no progress to report
  • logo not listed on project website (http://teamengine.sourceforge.net)
  • Some contact on email, no status or provenance review.

Incubation committee has discussed dropping this project due to lack of progress / lack of plan to progress.

ZOO-Project

  • mentor:
  • no status or provenance review

Labs

Thanks to Landon Blake for his excellent leadership in reaching out to OSGeo Incubation Lab projects.

  • We have extended an invitation to OSGeo Labs projects to participate in the incubation list, as for many routine questions we can help without a dedicated mentor.
  • Landon has the idea of setting up resources for community building / project marketing / project governance
