Interesting; the mandate for OSGeo is to support open source
geospatial; not really to a produce a sensible stack of projects
(there are many vendors doing exactly that and we want to encourage
their success).

If the OSGeo brand wants to do some sensible work in this direction we
can start offering feature comparisons and so forth to enable users to

With this in mind I am coming down completely in the opposite
direction; I want to encourage competition and collaboration as two
tools to increase quality across the board.
