Dear Incubation Committee,

As the mentor for GeoNode Incubation, I would like to make a motion to graduate GeoNode from the OSGeo incubation process with Jeff Johnson to act as the Project Officer.

You will find the Incubation Checklist at:


During the incubation process much work has been done to solidify the intellectual property behind GeoNode.

  *   copyright was transferred from the now dissolved OpenPlans
  *   a Contributor License Agreement has been adopted and a process created to collect from all contributors
  *   all files have been checked for headers
  *   the release process documentation has been shored up

GeoNode has a tremendous "bus quotient" as there are core developers distributed globally. Many of the institutional direct users have developed strong expertise in GeoNode along with many companies that have developed support programs built around GeoNode. There is no single point of failure for this project.

The GeoNode has managed to work in the open from inception in a way that has enabled enormous amounts of collaboration both between institutions using GeoNode and companies/individuals providing support for GeoNode.
