The OSGeo homepage now lists Orfeo ToolBox as an OSGeo Project. 
Congratulations to the OTB team!!!!  And thank you to Landon for 
mentoring.  I have also updated the Incubation wiki, as well as the 
OSGeo Wikipedia page.  Manuel: please let me know if you need help 
updating any other pages with this big news.
