This is to announce that work has begun on what is being named the
"OSGeo4W" installer.  To keep this announcement email short, please see
its Wiki page for more installer details
(http://wiki.osgeo.org/index.php/OSGeo_Win32_Installer).  Also, a new
mailing list has been created, osgeo4w-dev (join at
http://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/osgeo4w-dev), so let's use that
list for further discussions please (no need for a long thread on the
discuss list).

Consider this an invitation to all foss4g software maintainers to jump
on board and assist in the creation of this much needed windows
installer (currently windows users need to know where to get FWTools,
MS4W, QuantumGIS, PostGIS, winGRASS, GeoServer....and the list goes
on...*and* each contains their own build of shared libraries like GDAL).
  If you are interested as a foss4g maintainer, to start please login to
that wiki page and add your name to the 'Participants' section.

One thing is for sure, this is a huge task so it is clearly going to
require involvement from lots of communities.  So please jump on board!

See ya on the osgeo4w-dev list!!
