/Kristof, Bastian,
Thanks for your overview doc (copied below). It is looking good.
Inserted in italics are my comments. Could you please address these by 
the end of the week./

  52°North WPS¶ <cid:part1.07010300.04020203 at gmail.com>

/Cameron: Please include the following category heading:
Web Processing Service


52°North Web Processing Service (WPS). This WPS provides basic GIS 
function via standardized OGC interfaces. A demo client is included with 
test request.
Cameron:/ /Most people won't know what a WPS is. Please include a 
sentence or 2 explaining what a WPS is, and possibly when or why you 
would use it.

/Cameron: In this overview section, please provide a bit more 
description. You should summarise the Core Features into general text here./

    Core Features¶ <cid:part2.06090609.00020005 at gmail.com>

/Cameron: For core features, try reducing specifics. The reader probably 
won't know what a WPS is, let alone versions of the standard.
Cameron: Remove references to "Open Source" - everything on OSGeo-Live 
is Open Source. /
/Cameron: Please include a screen shot, or related image. It will make 
the description much more professional./

              o Supports exception handling according to the spec
              o Storing of execution results
              o Full maven support
          /Cameron: This point is too technical, I suggest simplifying
          or removing./


      Synchronous/Asynchronous invocation


      Raw data support


      Supports HTTP-GET for Execute

              o Web GUI to maintain the service

              o /Cameron: Again, above formats are quite detailed. If

                overview above./
