> OSGeo is pleased to announce that the GeoServer project has graduated
> from incubation and is now a full fledged OSGeo project. Andrea Aime, a
> long time member of the GeoServer Project Steering Committee (PSC), has
> been appointed as project officer.
> GeoServer (http://www.geoserver.org/) is an Open Source Java Web App
> allowing users to publish, share and edit geospatial data. GeoServer is
> well known for its ease of use, excellent documentation and active
> development community. Designed for interoperability, GeoServer has
> always had a strong base in open standards and is a reference
> implementation of the OGC Web Feature and Web Coverage Services. It also
> supports other well known standards such as the Web Map and Web
> Processing service. GeoServer is supported by an easy-to-use web
> configuration and a full REST API for configuration.
> Graduating incubation (http://www.osgeo.org/incubator) includes
> fulfilling requirements for open community operation, a responsible
> project governance model, code provenance, and general good project
> operation. Graduation is the OSGeo seal of approval for a project and
> gives potential users and the community at large an added confidence in
> the viability and safety of the project.
> The project steering committee says, "The GeoServer team is thrilled to
> be recognized as a full OSGEo project. There have been strong ties
> between the two communities with GeoServer developers being involved as
> charter members, volunteering at the committee level and represented in
> local OSGeo chapters and helping with foss4g. We are very happy to be
> included as part of OSGeo and a member of such an esteemed group of
> projects."
> OSGeo would also like to thank Landon Blake, Jody Garnett, and the
> Aust-NZ OSGeo Chapter, the Free Software Foundation and The Eclipse
> Foundation for their assistance during this Incubation process
> Congratulations to the GeoServer community!
