I also want to extend my thanks to the GeoNode community (shout out to
Angelos) who took part in incubation. I hope you found the experience
valuable, and the OSGeo community welcoming. If there is anything we as an
Incubation committee can do to entice you to stay and mentor additional
OSGeo projects let me know!

I have added this to the board meeting agenda
<https://wiki.osgeo.org/index.php?title=Board_Meeting_2016-11-03> and for
3rd Nov. Jeff if you are available it would be great if you could attend
this IRC meeting - to introduce yourself to the board in your new official

> 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
