The page is marked 'private', so perhaps only the author (and
administrators?) can see it until it is published.

We have focused on just listing the project on the website, if the project
takes the next step and is listed as an 'osgeo community' project the
incubation committee does have some budget to put towards community

Thanks for recognizing and promoting their work, long term viability is a
challenge for all open source projects.
