Hi All,

I'd like to point to the ticket 293 (MapFish Incubation application
http://trac.osgeo.org/osgeo/ticket/293), more than a year old, for
which the incubation committee hasn't given any answer yet.

The experiences and discussions at the FOSS4G conference clearly shows
the large interest and the need for such a framework in the FOSS4G
ecosystem. Since last year, the number of users, organizations,
companies implementing or contributing to MapFish has continuously
increased. MapFish fills some holes as a high end webmapping
framework, now that some projects using previous generation technology
are stalling or slowly dying. A PSC is being set-up with a large
representation from different organizations, countries, background.

All the criteria for Incubation are fully met and it is now really a
good time, as I've discussed with several members of the incubation
committee, to start incubation as the MapFish just went through one
lifecycle and is just starting the next one with important strategic

We will discuss the project organization during the BoF 2 hours from
now and I hope we can take the chance to discuss afterwards with
members of the Incubation Committee to quickly go on the further steps
leading to incubation start.
