OSGeo is pleased to announce that the Quantum GIS project has graduated from
the incubation process and is now a full fledged OSGeo project with Gary
Sherman appointed as project representative (Vice President, QGIS).

Quantum GIS (QGIS) is a user friendly Open Source Geographic Information
System (GIS) that runs on Linux, Unix, Mac OSX, and Windows.  QGIS supports
many vector, raster, and database formats and lets you browse and create map
data on your computer.


Graduating incubation includes requirements for open community operation,
a responsible project governance model, code provenance and license
verification and general good project operation. Graduating incubation
is the OSGeo seal of approval for a project and gives potential users of
the project added confidence in the viability and safety of the project.
