Not at all. If projects want to become active in Location Tech they
have the option. This will not take away anything from their
involvement with OSGeo.

I hope so.

This will in part depend on the projects. OSGeo is happy with projects
maintaing their code in any appropriate environment they like. Eclipse
seems to be somewhat more restrictive.

> Will funding raised by Eclipse LIWG reach projects on OSGeo?

Yes, obviously, especially if the projects have already been through
OSGeo incubation.

See above.

It is still in formation, so if you have special needs or an idea or
doubts, voice them. Peter Batty will have an open ear for you and
direct contect into Location Tech.
