  Yes it is true, the project is new and marked as an early version. 
However, earlier this year the core authors managed to solicit Sean 
Gilles to directly contribute. Sean Gilles has single-handedly done for 
python geospatial what ten years of committees and projects did not do 
- by authoring clean and simple geo interfaces to the most fundemental 
commandline apps in the OSGeo toolspace. 
  So when Sean Gilles signed on this year as an author of GeoPandas, my 
expectations changed.. I have been working with the GeoPandas library 
just a tiny bit. It works as advertised and is built not as a partial 
effort, but rather the spare and lean basis of more to come... 
  I suggest we add GeoPandas in quietly, as it takes almost negligible 
disk space, and adds value to others in the python geospatial stack.
