Yep you got it all covered in your text, and I am familiar with the
project, and was really happy when you added it to the website ((

We have been getting better at boiled down our guidance for GitHub projects:
- Requesting a README (geospatial)
- LICENSE (open source)
- CONTRIBUTING (open to contributions)

For projects joining the OSGeo Community program we dial the LICENSE
requirement up a notch, also ask that headers be checked.

For more information / examples check recent incubation presentation

Checking https://github.com/geopaparazzi/geopaparazzi
- Can I as you to pull together a CONTRIBUTING.md file (this is shown to
contributors when they make a pull request). We have some examples from
other projects to draw on if you need inspiration.
- Have you checked the source code headers? Checking a few files
I did not spot anything missing, but we should ask :)

When you are ready we will make a motion to the incubation committee.
