Dear GRASS GIS community,

herewith I may bring a discussion on QGIS dev ML about how to proceed with
maintaining GRASS, OTB and other algorithms in qgis processing to your


it seems that a shared attempt may be needed for a long-term, sustainable

citing here my post in that thread:

quickly screened the GRASS MLs, I can't find any entry that the GRASS
community was ever asked if there could be e.g. a shared attempt for an
automatization to create/maintain the plugin code.

Looking at the new OSGeo website:

*Desktop Applications*

-QGIS Desktop

*Geospatial Libraries*

-Orfeo ToolBox

*Meta CRS Initiative*


Most of the software mentioned in this thread are projects under the common
umbrella of OSGeo.

An option may be to ask that OSGeo plays a more proactive role in helping to
coordinate and supporting (technically/financally/...) such inter-project

I will forward a short summary of this thread to the GRASS community.

contributions of ideas/support/technical solutions/... are very welcome.

best regards
