== Purpose ==
 
  
The OSGeo Labs is a place to advertise Open Source Geospatial Softwares that are not part of the Incubation process yet. This aim to help projects to share ideas and resources and help them to grow bigger and better.
+
This wiki page is a scratchpad of ideas forming the osgeo community program. To see how these ideas have been realized please see our [http://osgeo.org/committees/incubation website page].
  
== How to start ==

= Purpose =
  
# Join the OSGeo-discuss mailing-list
+
The purpose of *OSGeo Community* projects is help foster innovation and include more project teams in the Open Source Geospatial Foundation.
# Discuss your project to make sure you are not reinventing the wheel without any new functionality
+
# Get your project a mailing-list and a bug tracker (see [[#Helpful Resource]])
+
# Advertise on OSGeo-Discuss mailing-list
+
# Share!
+
  
== Criteria ==
+
= OSGeo support for project teams =
  
# The code is under an OSI approved license (data & doc projects need to specify their choice for a type of license).
+
If you would like your software project to listed on the website, or apply to become an OSGeo community project, please send a description of your project to the [http://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/incubator OSGeo Incubation Committee Mailing List]. We look forward to helping you!
# The project is willing to keep code clear of encumbrances
+
# The project is "geospatial", or directly in support of geospatial applications.
+
# The project as been accepted by the OSGeo Incubation Committee

 +
#* project page on the osgeo website
 +
#* We ask projects have some user documentation, for example an OSGeo Live quickstart
 +
# Have a free license or an open source license.
 +
#* The license must be OSI approved

OSGeo Community Projects can take part in the incubation committee for guidance on open source use, setting up project governance, promoting the project, and building the project community. We look forward to working with you.

To be recognized as an *OSGeo Project* a project team applies for the OSGeo incubation program. Successful projects are teamed up with an experienced open source mentor to help answer questions, obtain legal council, and help guide work on transparency and community development as required.

The incubation process establishes a project as a full fledged OSGeo committee, with a project project officer, with direct access to OSGeo treasurer, and reporting to the board during annual general meeting.

Attend one of the OSGeo board monthly meetings, or ask on the board mailing list, if your project has an activity that can benefit from financial support.

This wiki page is a scratchpad of ideas forming the osgeo community program. To see how these ideas have been realized please see our website page.

Purpose

The purpose of *OSGeo Community* projects is help foster innovation and include more project teams in the Open Source Geospatial Foundation.

OSGeo support for project teams

If you would like your software project to listed on the website, or apply to become an OSGeo community project, please send a description of your project to the OSGeo Incubation Committee Mailing List. We look forward to helping you!

About OSGeo Website Project List

To be listed on the OSGeo website:

  1. Be geospatial
    • Confirm by checking README or project description
  2. Have a free license or open source license
    • The license must be OSI approved

In addition to being listed on the website, projects applying to the *OSGeo Community* program are asked to:

  1. Be geospatial
    • Confirm by checking README or project description
    • project page on the osgeo website
    • We ask projects have some user documentation, for example an OSGeo Live quickstart
  2. Have a free license or an open source license.
    • The license must be OSI approved
    • We ask that the project team check the file headers and double check the license has been appropriately applied
  3. Welcome participation and new contributors.
    • We look for a clear contribution policy
    • We ask that the project demonstrate collaboration, perhaps with a history of bug report or pull requests

OSGeo Community Projects can take part in the incubation committee for guidance on open source use, setting up project governance, promoting the project, and building the project community. We look forward to working with you.

OSGeo provides code of conduct guidance, many projects selecting contribution covenant).

About OSGeo Projects

To be recognized as an *OSGeo Project* we ask that project teams excel in each of areas mentioned above, see graduation checklist for more detail.

The *OSGeo Project* designation is intended to recognize established projects with a diverse community developers and users with a proven track record.

To be recognized as an *OSGeo Project* a project team applies for the OSGeo incubation program. Successful projects are teamed up with an experienced open source mentor to help answer questions, obtain legal council, and help guide work on transparency and community development as required.

Although incubation is a lot of work, this is opportunity for project teams to grow and improve and be publicly recognized for their accomplishment.
