OSGeo is pleased to announce that the GeoServer project has graduated
from incubation and is now a full fledged OSGeo project. Andrea Aime, a
long time member of the GeoServer Project Steering Committee (PSC), has
been appointed as project officer.

GeoServer is an Open Source Java Web App allowing users to publish,
share and edit geospatial data. GeoServer is well known for its ease of
use, excellent documentation and active development community. Designed
for interoperability, GeoServer has always had a strong base in open
standards and is a reference implementation of the OGC Web Feature and
Web Coverage Services. It also supports other well known standards such
as the Web Map and Web Processing service. GeoServer is supported by an
easy-to-use web configuration and a full REST API for configuration.

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

The project steering committee says, "The GeoServer team is thrilled to
be recognized as a full OSGeo project. There have been strong ties
between the two communities with GeoServer developers being involved as
charter members, volunteering at the committee level and represented in
local OSGeo chapters and helping with FOSS4G. We are very happy to be
included as part of OSGeo and a member of such an esteemed group of

OSGeo would also like to thank Landon Blake, Jody Garnett, the Aust-NZ
OSGeo Chapter, the Free Software Foundation, and The Eclipse Foundation
for their assistance during this Incubation process.

Congratulations to the GeoServer community!
