Hi Jody, all,

I am currently the mentor for the MetaCRS project, which is a kind of a 
special case because it is an aggregate of multiple CRS-related 
projects, given that each of them is not big enough on its own, but that 
the services they provide are critical to all OSGeo software, and we 
thought that cross-collaboration between those projects can be a great 
OSGeo asset and a way to raise their respective bus numbers.

I still believe that MetaCRS should try to get through incubation, but I 
can't find the time to work with them in a proactive way towards that 
(and they have not made that a priority either).

All this to say that if another experienced mentor is interested, then 
it may be a good idea that I leave this project to a new mentor to work 
with the MetaCRS projects to figure how to handle their special 
situation and get them through incubation.

The lead of the MetaCRS project is Frank Warmerdam BTW.

Any volunteer?
