I think it makes sense to have WorldWind at least as a community project.
But it has to be WorldWind who requests it as a project. We can only invite
WorldWind to join, as we have already done. If Jody was not explicit
enough, I can do it again:

*WorldWind, do you want to be an OSGeo community project? *

Patrick, if it is not you anymore, who do we have to redirect this question
to? Who is the leader/speaker of the core team of developers that run it?

If, after being a community project, WorldWind wants to start incubation
and go through the process of becoming a full OSGeo project, we will gladly
help. But at least, it makes sense to do this first step. And I am pretty
sure that most of the requirements to go through the incubation process are
already fulfilled. We just need WorldWind to say they want to go through
this process and help tick the checkboxes.

But, as said, *OSGeo cannot claim WorldWind if WorldWind doesn't say
explicitly that they want to join. *Simple as that. Just give us an
official yes and we can start rolling the wheel.
