Thanks mentoring Jeff, it is great that pycsw is ready and it sounds like a
fun community.

I will look over the checklist / provenance review and get back to you with
any questions.

Aside: I see the project uses github wiki, you can start a line with "* (
)" and "* (x)" for check boxes :)

> Hello Incubation Committee,
> I am writing to you as the Mentor of the pycsw project, which is currently
> in the Incubation process with OSGeo.
> I'd like to submit a Project Graduation Checklist document, for review by
> the OSGeo Incubation Committee: https://github.com/geopython/
> pycsw/wiki/Project-Graduation-Checklist
> You will notice in the document that a code provenance review has been
> completed as well: https://github.com/geopython/
> pycsw/wiki/pycsw-Provenance-Review
> I have been watching this community grow over the years (I have a good
> sense of what makes a strong community), and I am very impressed with both
> how active the code is being maintained, and also the fast growth of
> implementations of pycsw by large organizations. I also monitor its mailing
> list, which I do for hundreds of software projects, and it is very vibrant
> (always an important sign of an active community).  Lastly, that pycsw is
> the OGC reference implementation for the CSW standard, is proof of the
> attention to detail and commitment by the pycsw team.
> I'd also like to mention that, the pycsw team is very keen and excited to
> become an official OSGeo project, which cannot be put down on paper or
> measured, but it is one of the most important parts of the process I
> believe.
> Therefore as mentor, I recommend to the Incubation Committee that pycsw
> graduates, and becomes an official OSGeo Project.
> Let me know if you have any questions and I can relay to the pycsw team.
> Thanks everyone,
