> To: announce at lists.osgeo.org
> The OSGeo Foundation is pleased and proud  to announce that the
> GeoNode project has graduated from incubation and is now a full
> fledged OSGeo project. Jeffery Johnson, a long time member of the
> GeoNode Project Steering Committee (PSC) has been appointed as Project
> Officer.
> GeoNode is a web-based application and platform for developing
> geospatial information systems (GIS) and for deploying spatial data
> infrastructures (SDI). It is designed to be extended and modified, and
> can be integrated into existing platforms. Geonode is Open Source,
> released under an GPL license, and runs on all major platforms
> (Windows, Linux, Mac OS X).
> The project powers numerous global initatives such as, WorldMao
> (worldmap.harvard.edu/), MapStory (www.mapstory.org/), Risiko/SAFE, UN
> World Food Program (geonode.wfp.org/), EU JRC
> (geonode.jrc.ec.europa.eu/) and more (see
> http://geonode.org/gallery/).
> Graduating incubation includes fulfilling requirements for open
> community operation, a responsible project governance model, code
> provenance, and general good project operation. Graduation is the
> OSGeo seal of approval for a project and gives potential users and the
> community at large an added confidence in the viability and safety of
> the project.
> The GeoNode Project Officer, Jeffery Johnson says, "The entire GeoNode
> Development team is delighted to have our project join the ranks of
> leading Open Source GIS software and become part of the OSGeo family.
> We look forward to working with OSGeo to further the adoption of these
> tools around the world."
> David Bitner, mentor of the incubation process says: "As the mentor
> for the GeoNode incubation process, it is exciting to welcome the
> entire GeoNode team as an official OSGeo project. It has been exciting
> to work with such a vibrant and diverse community through the
> incubation process. I look forward to seeing the continued growth of
> the project for many years to come."
> OSGeo and Geonode PSC would also like to thank Jody Garnett and
> Angelos Tzotsos for their assistance during this incubation process.
> Congratulations to the GeoNode community!
