It is really up to projects to come to OSGeo if they are
interested in formally being OSGeo projects.  Certainly
I would love to see Mapnik as an OSGeo project.

In any event, Mapnik developers (/me shouts out to Dane
Springmeyer) have been very actively involved in FOSS4G
events like the performance benchmarking efforts and code
sprints, and already operate on the principles of FOSS4G.

I am pleased to have the level of cooperation and camaraderie
we already have with Mapnik whether it is formally an OSGeo
project or not.
