Recent Graduates

We are tracking recent graduates for a few months to ensure that the correct OSGeo Project logo is rolled out onto the project website, the community is informed, and the OSGeo board has a chance to make a news announcement and appoint a project officer.

Incubation

The following projects are following the OSGeo Incubation process.

Relationship with OSGeo:

  • OSGeo lists these project on the main OSGeo http://www.osgeo.org website.

Relationship with Incubation Committee:

  • Project are expected to link from the Incubation_Committee wiki to:
    • A Provenance Review document (to confirm they are open source)

Progress:

  • The project recently appointed a Benevolent Dictatorship, which is not compatible with OSGeo direction for open development. While we can negotiate on the form, a project steering committee is only one example, we do want to ensure that OSGeo projects are open to all willing participants on equal footing.
  • Bruce is going to report back in a couple of months.

TEAM Engine

  • mentor: Justin Deolivera
  • no progress to report
  • logo not listed on project website (http://teamengine.sourceforge.net)

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
