Dear Arnulf,

Thanks for the comments. It would be a pleasure to have articles from you or any other Osgeo member in our magazine. The language is not a problem at all. Our team is composed of very good professionals in Brazil and Portugal and we can provide the translations.
So anyone who's interested in sending a message to Brazilian Fossgis community feel invited to submit articles to submissao at fossgisbrasil.com.br.
Best regards,

Felipe dos Santos Costa

congratulations and thanks for this, looks like a great magazine (from
the little that I actually understand...).

It is nice to see that some OSGeo resources are reused including Wiki
and graphics. This is what OSGeo set out to do, support the geospatial
FOSS idea in as many regions and languages possible. Please feel free to
add the OSGeo logo and a link back to the web site.

I guess that there will be many people in Brazil who have no clear
concept of what OSGeo is all about. So maybe it would be a good idea to
have an article with some basic information about OSGeo in one of your
next editions (as you have a good one about OGC in this edition).
Unfortunately I am not able to write in Portuguese myself, so all I can
do is ask others... :-)

Best regards,

I don't think that the core of acidmaps would be moved to geoserver,
because we like the idea of a shared library that can be accessed form
multiple sources, JNI being one of those, some future implementations
could be a MapServer plugin, a plugin for QGis, etc...

We created first the geoserver plugin because that's what most of our
projects are using as map server, but we want to integrate it with
others systems too.

Other could be changing the plugin access to the native library from JNI
to JNA.

It would be good to know if the GeoServer team it's interested, we can
probably find a better/smarter way to integrate AcidMaps.

Given the live cd it's based on ubuntu, I think that the library can be
installed on system path, and the geoserver plugin be already deployed
in geoserver/WEB-INF/lib.
