Dear All,

I started looking into the gvSIG incubation checklist at 
http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/GvSIG_Incubation_Checklist and am having a 
hard time tracking down info about the Technical Steering Committee.

The checklist points to 
http://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/GvSIG_Technical_Steering_Committee which in 
turn points to two broken links for the 
[https://gvsig.org/web/working-groups/organizacion gvSIG TSC front page] 
and [https://lists.forge.osor.eu/listinfo/gvsig-desktop-tsc-pub public 
mailing list]

Can you please review the Incubation Checklist page (and the pages that 
it links to) and make sure all links are working? I'd like to see 
archives of the TSC mailing list showing that decisions are indeed made 
in an open manner and in collaboration with the community on a public 
list and I cannot find that at the moment. I managed to find an old TSC 
archive at 
http://joinup.ec.europa.eu/mailman/listinfo/gvsig-desktop-tsc-pub but 
the most recent posts date from 2013.
