Incubation Update

Java 2018 Code Sprint results

  • Successful for GeoServer - the project can now run under Java 11
  • More difficult / distruptive for GeoTools, but we met our sprint goals about half a week later
  • For GeoNetwork it was interesting and slow. In the end we got some pushes in GeoNetwork and advanced, but we are still veeeeeeeeeery far away of Java 11
  • The event *did* get sponsorship, but only the week before, or even during the event.
  • Discussion about code sprints being hosted by osgeo, or osgeo just sponsoring.
  • The event has "made money" for the code sprint program. A big thank you to sponsors, and to OSGeo for hosting.
  • For 2019 we have the next sprint coming:

2019 Budget planning, starting the call out to committees

  • Action 4: Jody to compile a list of volunteers to contact projects ASAP
