Hi all.
OSGEO4W is a crucial piece of our infrastructure, and is one of the
main services we are giving for the spread of GFOSS.
I think it does not get the attention it deserves. The active
developer team is very small, many packages are obsolete, and their
update is far from regular. I'm not blaming everybody, I sincerely
thank those who contribute; I just try to be objective. I think we
should move forward quickly. I suggest to make a Steering Committee
for OSGEO4W, so to have a clear roadmap, and give Windows (urgh!)
users a predictable environment. I think some of our million users
would be happy to support this effort, if they would know they
contribute actively to something they need.
My previous efforts to raise this question and to improve the
situation have met with no success. I think time is now ripe to act.
I'm available to help.
All the best, and thanks.
