  Hi all,

I would like to thank Paul from the bottom of my heart.
He has done a lot for the project and made it possible for Geomajas to 
enter incubation and propose for graduation in less then a year. Without 
him we would not be where we are now.

Also, I would like to invite you all to test Geomajas for yourselves in 
order to get a better feeling of what it does and where it stands. Any 
and all comments may help to improve upon the project.

The project has recently released version 1.7.1 which represents a very complete and professional GIS package for the java community.  There is sufficient documentation to allow even a non-java guy like myself to get it running.
> There were no major issues for GeoMajas during incubation.  Upon entering incubation, they already had a suitable PSC structure, mature development and user communities and development practices consistent with OSGeo principles.  Over past 7 months or so, I have been observing the functioning of the PSC via the user and developer mailing lists and I believe the PSC functions in a manner consistent with other OSGeo projects.
> The code provenance review was completely moderately quickly due to existing code documentation practices.  Outstanding issues of significance have been addressed.
> I believe that GeoMajas will make a great addition to the OSGeo stack and will represent the OSGeo community well.
> I invite folks to provide feedback, comments and discussion for the next week or two, at which time we will proceed with a formal motion.
