Hi all

In Nødebo at the hackfest we had some lengthy discussions about finally forming a legal entity for QGIS. With Andreas Neumann’s help we have drawn up a draft charter for creating a SWISS ‘Verein’ and would like to get the process underway. I have created a new QEP proposal here:

https://github.com/qgis/QGIS-Enhancement-Proposals/pull/22 <https://github.com/qgis/QGIS-Enhancement-Proposals/pull/22>

And there is the draft statute document available here:

https://docs.google.com/a/qgis.org/document/d/1FcChHYgoI4FlURrZRYBjD8kB6IBW_BaG0Ieg8TDT0pM/edit?usp=sharing <https://docs.google.com/a/qgis.org/document/d/1FcChHYgoI4FlURrZRYBjD8kB6IBW_BaG0Ieg8TDT0pM/edit?usp=sharing>

In the latter document anyone should be able to make comments - we will try to address all the comments and concerns you may raise in that document. Please keep your comments there brief and in the form of proposed amended wording to the document, and lets discuss in more detail where needed here on the mailing list. Hopefully the provided links above give sufficient background as to the why and how we intended to create the legal entity - if not we would be happy to run through our thinking. I believe Matthias Kuhn also recorded a short presentation I did at Nødebo explaining our plans - Matthias if it is of suitable quality, perhaps you could share that clip in this thread?
