OSGeo Web Committee,
Currently, there are a list of OSGeo projects at http://osgeo.org, most 
of which link to an
  OSGeo page describing the project (eg http://www.osgeo.org/deegree). 
Unfortunately, these OSGeo Project pages are not being maintained.

I propose that instead the list should link to the OSGeo Live Project 
Overviews, such as: http://live.osgeo.org/en/overview/deegree_overview.html

These Project Overviews are updated every 6 months as part of the 
OSGeo-Live build process, and are written in a consistent manner, with 
OSGeo branding.

Note: A secondary option could be to link to the Project's home page 
instead. I suggest that links to OSGeo-Live Project Overviews are 
preferable due to the consistent layout of the Project Overviews.
