>  Hi Cameron,
> The outstanding issues from the pycsw Provenance Review are:
> 1. The OSGeoLive pycsw installer script was maintained in pycsw source
> tree before pushing changes to OSGeoLive. Since the license for the
> installer is LGPL, there is a conflict.
> I just removed the installer from the pycsw tree. It is *not* used by
> pycsw. Problem solved.

> 2. The OGC schemas are included in pycsw to validate incoming XML
> requests. This discussion started when we pushed pycsw as a package to
> Debian. Debian developers identified the license problem and reported back
> to us. There is a discussion between OSGeo, OGC and  DebianGIS on standards
> mailing list and we hope this will be resolved soon, not only for pycsw but
> also for various other OSGeo projects (both graduated and not) that include
> OGC schemas in their code tree.
