Hi Peter,

I have added this as an agenda item at the next regularly scheduled 
Board meeting, on 6 September 
(https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Board_Meeting_2018-09-06).  Would you mind 
attending this IRC meeting in person?

Thanks,

-jeff

From this point of view, open source software, like the graduated OSGeo projects) are considered a part of scientific _data_, which is/should be provided via well curated data repositories (i.e. software repository infrastructures as required by the OSGeo incubation process).
