Reviewing your website page <https://www.osgeo.org/projects/rasdaman/>...

I would like to ask you to fill in information for each of the forms, this
allows the pages to be presented in a consistent fashion and layout. Some
of the information (like implemented standards) you have added by hand to
the "content' tab ... and their is a "standards" box on the right hand side
that is used for this purpose.

* Project type - we will update this to "community project" once your
application is successfully reviewed
- Content: Image - it is really important to share what the application
looks like. Or example output, or really anything.  Folks want to have an
understanding of what they are evaluating or downloading. For bonus marks
you can use the laptop frame here
<https://github.com/OSGeo/osgeo/tree/master/marketing/photos> around a
screen snap.
* Core Features - is empty
* About - who's involved: any individuals or committers you can list?
* Tools/Libraries
* Similar projects / Similar proprietary products - important for outreach
as often folks will wish to migrate from another system
* Social media - anything?
* End-user resources - website, documentation, etc...
* Developer resources - repository, build documentation, whatever you have
* Footer - if you reference a commercial product, or if rasderman name is
trademarked, it is appropriate put a note that that effect here
