Just going through this now because it is so exciting ...


For the contribution docs I am not quite sure they are up to date - I was
looking at how the CLA was handled during contributing.
- broken [[links]]
- https://github.com/GeoNode/geonode/blob/master/CONTRIBUTING looks good
references www.clahub.com, does the link work when doing a pull request?
- Excellent docs though, and good to credit the github guides.

David do you have links to a PSC decision or two so we can see how it is
done? I am curious as what kind of question would cause the community to
"resort to taking things to the PSC for vote"?

> 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:
> https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/GeoNode_Incubation_Checklist
> 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.
> Thanks,
> David
