OSGeo Labs Projects

Pending Incubation

Projects which have self assessed themselves ready for incubation and waiting for a mentor: http://trac.osgeo.org/osgeo/query?status=new&status=assigned&component=Incubator&keywords=%7Eapplication

Stable Projects

Young or Experimental Projects

  1. GeoFunctions Geo Functions sourceforge page

Purpose

OSGeo Labs is a place to list Open Source Geospatial Software that hasn't reached Incubation status. OSGeo Labs aims to:

  • Help projects progress to OSGeo Incubation.
  • Advertise projects and find like minded developers.
  • Merge with similar projects. A project has a greater chance of reaching Incubation when integrated with similar projects.

This is the right place to start submitting your project so other OSGeo members can review them and send you feedback.

Criteria

Projects should only list themselves in OSGeo Labs if they follow the OSGeo Incubation principles.

  1. The code is under an OSI approved license (data & doc projects need to specify their choice for a type of license).
  2. The project is willing to keep code clear of encumbrances
  3. The project is "geospatial", or directly supports geospatial applications.
  4. The project hopes to become a graduated OSGeo project, or have reasons why incubation is not appropriate.

Responsibilities

OSGeo Labs aims to have minimal red tape to reduce overhead.

Project Champion

The Project Champion is responsible for:

  1. Strongly recommended: Read Karl Fogel's book on Open Source Software - How to Run a Successful Free Software Project
  2. Ensure the project complies with OSGeo principles by addressing the #Criteria Criteria above.
  3. Create a home page for the project. The OSGeo wiki is recommended for this page. A page should answer the OSGeo #Criteria OSGeo Criteria.
  4. List the project under the appropriate heading on this page.
  5. Announce and discuss the project on the OSGeo Discuss email list.
  6. Move the project toward incubation.

Incubation Committee

  1. Investigate, then possibly remove a project from OSGeo Labs if doesn't follow OSGeo principles.
  2. Periodically (at least annually), review projects in OSGeo labs and remove projects which have "died".

Helpful Resource

  1. Get your project a mailing-list and a bug tracker
    1. SourceForge provides code respository, mailing list and bug tracker services. (contact Landon Blake to get help on SourceForge service)
  2. Approach the Spotlights editors about doing a spotlight interview about your project.
