as a member of the orfeo team, I just want to do an update regarding the 
OTB incubation process (I've just checked and updated the application 
this morning):



I've especially complete information regarding Foundation membership 
(complete IMO) and the code copyright review.

Long story short, no blocking (or unknown) issues regarding license of 
third party and copyrights. Since the end of 2015, OTB is in the process 
to be uploaded to Debian for the first time and has entered the "NEW 
queue". I've added more information in the application about included 
libraries and copyright management.

Note that there are also initiatives of the community to investigate the 
feasibility to move OTB from GPL to an Apache license (see 
https://www.orfeo-toolbox.org/blog/page/6/?cat=1). If it happens it will 
be discus and done following the decision making process set up in 2015 
(inspired by other osgeo projects like gdal, qgis...) but I am not sure 
that it should be "correlate" with the osgeo incubation process.

Hope that we will be able to make some progress this year regarding this.

Thanks again to Landon for his mentoring and pushing forward otb 

Best regards,
