Yes of course, it would.
To answer completly your first question, here is the criteria on wich
applications could be evaluated to pretend being labelled by OSGeo ?
1- mains values hold by OSGeo
* Mutualization : does the application federate local, national or
international actors ? Do they mutualized their developpment /
methodology / ... ? How ?
* Openess : does the application use and promote FOSS4G ? Does the
project organisation is open for new actors ?
* Transparency : How it's hold by the project ?
2- Technical criteria :
* Applications based on non forked OSGeo components
* Generic functionnalities commited in OSGeo components
* Compatibility with SVN OSGeo components
3- OSGeo communities links with the project
4- Other criterias :
* Viability of the project : who finance it ? Futur plan for the
* Visibility of the project : marketing plan ?
Any comments ?
