Hi all,

The page at https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Live_GIS_Disc_Apply  has a list of questions with regards to adding a new project to OSGeoLive. Some aren't applicable as GeoExt is a JS library, but other details are below. 

The docs are at https://github.com/OSGeo/OSGeoLive-doc/pull/448
The OSGeoLive install script is at https://github.com/OSGeo/OSGeoLive/pull/257

What is its name? 

What does the application do and how does it add value to the GeoSpatial stack of software?

GeoExt is a JavaScript library for building rich geospatial applications that was first started in 2009. A good summary of the project can be found in the FOSS4G 2015 presentation at http://marcjansen.github.io/foss4g-2015/Towards-GeoExt-3-Supporting-both-OpenLayers-3-and-ExtJS-6.html

What is the home page URL?

Which OSI approved Open Source Licence is used?
GPLv3 or BSD License dependent on ExtJS license 

Does the application make use of OGC standards? Which versions of the standards? Client or server? 
Uses OGC standards - WMS, WFS (both client)

What language is it written in?

Which version of the application should be included in the next OSGeo-Live release?

Has the application been rolled out to production into risk (ideally risk adverse) organisations? 

What is the Open HUB URL for your project?

What is the size of your developer community?
9 developers have contributed in the last year

What is the size of the user community?
There is a mailing list with infrequent posts. Many applications are Intranet based so it is hard to guage active use. 

Please discuss the level of testing that your project has gone through.
Fully automated test suite using Travis/Karma

How much disk space will be required to install the application and a suitable example application?
Disk space - < 3MB (mainly the ExtJS library)

Who will act as the project's liaison person?
I'm willing to act as the project liaison.

How long has the project has had mature code?
GeoExt has been around since 2009. GeoExt3 was started in 2015. 

Do you have a bug free, stable release?
Yes (although some open issues as with every project)

If anyone has any further questions please send them on and I'll attempt to answer them.
