[Live-demo] [Incubator] Should "MetaCRS" be dropped from OSGeo Incubation (and maybe also from OSGeo-Live)?

Hi Jody,
Great to hear there is some activity happening with the CRS libraries.
But the question is not as to whether the projects are active, but 
rather whether there are people within the projects wishing to push 
these projects through the OSGeo Incubation process.

Rob, Martin, any thoughts from you?

I'd suggest we give people a week or 2 to respond, probably try and 
reach out directly as well, and if there are no takers, then we should 
gracefully have these projects step back from the OSGeo Incubation 
process, in order to better reflect the current OSGeo status of these 

Warm regards, Cameron
