This is to announce that work has begun on what is being named the 
"OSGeo4W" installer.  To keep this announcement email short, please see 
its Wiki page for more installer details 
(http://wiki.osgeo.org/index.php/OSGeo_Win32_Installer).  Also, a new 
mailing list has been created, osgeo4w-dev (join at 
http://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/osgeo4w-dev), so let's use that 
list for further discussions please (no need for a long thread on the 
discuss list).

Consider this an invitation to all foss4g software maintainers to jump 
on board and assist in the creation of this much needed windows 
installer (currently windows users need to know where to get FWTools, 
MS4W, QuantumGIS, PostGIS, winGRASS, GeoServer....and the list goes 
on...*and* each contains their own build of shared libraries like GDAL). 
  If you are interested as a foss4g maintainer, to start please login to 
that wiki page and add your name to the 'Participants' section.

One thing is for sure, this is a huge task so it is clearly going to 
require involvement from lots of communities.  So please jump on board!

See ya on the osgeo4w-dev list!!
