The Projects and Incubating Projects list on the OSGeo web site is intended
to list direct projects of OSGeo, not all open source or even open source
geospatial projects.

I'm not familiar with MDWeb, but OpenJump can be found at:


Drupal is not geospatial, and I assume you can find the project page if you
need to.  gvSIG is listed on the OSGeo page, but in the "Incubating
Projects" list.  GeoToolkit is a fork of the OSGeo GeoTools project.  I
think it is now an Apache project.  WorldWind is I believe directly
administered by NASA (not too sure), and I'm not certain about Osmosis
which I assume is OSM related.

There are many projects which I consider "friends of OSGeo" in the sense
that they are often used in conjunction with OSGeo projects or by folks who
are involved in OSGeo but that are not actually projects of OSGeo.  I often
recommend these, and they are discussed at conferences like FOSS4G.

I hope my response helps clarify why that is.
