From OSGeo
Jump to: navigation, search


NOTE: OSGeo does not have anything in common with this letter. We just used the OSGeo infrastructure as common and neutral place for forming our ideas.


We, developers and users of various WPS implementations, are strongly protesting agains the presentation of Theodor Förster, presented at FOSS4G 2010, "Complaince Testing of Open Source Software for Web Processing Services" [1].

The presentation was based on report of BRISEIDE project [2], which was written by Bastian Schäffer File:WPS Study.pdf.

The presentation is based on falsified data, unauthorized compliance testing and goes against all scientific ethics. Additional details to support the above claim can be provided if necessary. I attach the report for your perusal.

Firstly, would like to request that the above presentation be removed from the FOSS4G2010 program with immediate effect.
