Hei all,

maybe the extended abstract (1500 words) that I attach is of interest to

Software? -- A first Assessment" [1]. It got accepted for GIScience 2010 
in Zurich, next week, but unfortunately only as poster - despite good 

If someone knows of similar papers, please let me/us know. There was for

a not downloadable abstract of it [2] and also not a full paper.

Sorry for not having contributed much to the list activities lately.

cheers from Calgary,
