Suchith Is there any answer to my question on the number of organizations
that have provided an open source report card? While I wrote one for
boundless I am not sure I have seen any others.

For listing service providers I would like to avoid putting organizations
in the position of ranking their own participation (a weakness with the
report card approach). When listing service providers we are following the
"core contributors" and "contributors" model used by qgis and geoserver -
so the project steering committee will be the only ones in position to
influence listing order.
