OTB Project

  • Project has moved through the first four (4) phases of the incubation process and is preparing for the code provenance review. Graduation is expected in the Spring of 2015.
    • Web site redesign: We are currently revamping the web site to get an up-to-date look and feel, and have a better integration between site and other web components. As soon as we have a draft new version to show, we will provide you with a link. We've already integrated the OSGEO logo on the website and indicate that OTB is in incubation.
    • Code provenance review: there is a related discussion presently on the debian GIS mailing list related to the integration of OTB and also discussion about integrated third parties in OTB.

Don't think that there will have major issue with code provenance with OTB but I think that discussion with Debian guys will help to clarify how copyrights ans third parties and managed in the OTB project.
