Curious how GeoServer could not be certified as its the reference
implementation of several OGC standards. In any case, GeoNode is based
on these 2 + pycsw.

I have no idea who to talk to at OpenPlans anymore. We can try to poke around.

The downloads are in a few places. Ubuntu/debian packages are hosted
on launchpad, python packages are on pypi. Most people use one of the
two or just install from source off of github. We dont really provide
a downloadable package that would need to go on osgeo. The mailing
list is already hosted on osgeo and the website is hosted on github
pages. We have a jenkins build server on amazon and also use travis.

Let us know if there are any other issues we can help with.
