Just a few comments inline:

I also got a chance 1st hand to see your group join the Bolsena 2020 code
sprint :)

aside: It can be quite a big step for some organizations to think through
how to accept outside contributions, and notice they are no longer the sole
"owner" of a codebase. Indeed many groups just use an open source license
to publish because they can never get legal approval to work with others.

Please consider this message as an *Application of MobilityDB for OSGeo
> Community Project*.

Great, I appreciate your work thus far. It will take me some time to double
check and make a motion (so if any other committee member wants to have a
go please step up).
