In terms of adding it to the website:

1. geospatial

check :)

2. open source

- check

- no header but perhaps that is not the python way?

3. participatory

- check
- double check - odd it does not mention to contributors that they are
releasing their contribution as open source?

- can see a stream of pull requests

4. checking headers (see table

Not sure what to do on this one, if the python projects are not used to
having headers it seems silly to ask. The goal of the table above was to
split up the work of "providence review" and focus on checking headers
(which can be done with sed or similar) just as a sanity check that all the
source code is in fact open source.
