Hi Jody,

Here is my quick report as MetaCRS mentor. To be honest there is no real 
progress to report after close to 4 years in incubation. The project is 
not actively working on going through incubation, but then I have not 
been pinging them about this either so it would be hard to blame them.

MetaCRS is a special case as it actually regroups several projects 
dealing with coordinate reference system support, so this project is in 
large part about sharing expertize, maybe even more than just code.

CRS libs are a key part of every piece of OSGeo software and I consider 
that it is important to get them through incubation at some point, so I 
would advise keeping them in incubation at this point despite the lack 
of progress.

Hopefully when Frank (MetaCRS PSC chair) comes back we can talk about 
getting the project back on track with incubation.
