Bibliography of OS and Geo information

This is starting as the bibliography for a journal paper I started writing on applying open source principles to the geospatial arena. It never really finished, but it made me cite a bunch of stuff. I'll paste it all in here. Feel free to add new sources in, and to remove stuff that's not directly relevant. Hopefully it can make it easier for us to all write papers in the future.
