Hi OSGeo

The European Union's proposed Cyber Resilience Act has just come to the
attention of many non-EU folks as a potential dampener on open source
geospatial software development and usage. A summary from GitHub is here
(thanks Marco Bernasocchi for pointing it out):


 It's being discussed in the OSGeo board, and some responses from other
open source organisations have already been made, for example:

It would be great to hear your thoughts on the impact of the proposed
legislation on open source geospatial software development across the
globe  - so we can form an appropriate community response as soon as
possible. What are your thoughts?

Yes, we're late in gettung our attention on to this. Hopefully not too
