Comment (by dmorissette):

 Thanks for volunteering Howard. I'll take care of the motion.

 I'll also try to address Martin's concerns since I don't want anyone to
 think we're abusing OSGeo's resources. We could have done this on
 maptools.org anyway so you're right that we don't need OSGeo to host or to
 give credibility to UbuntuGIS... to me it's the contrary, UbuntuGIS is
 going to provide a service to the OSGeo community that I and others
 believe is important: up to date binary distributions... Frank already
 wrote about this goal of OSGeo in the wiki at

 Alan tried to explain the objectives of UbuntuGIS and address the
 difference with the "real" DebianGIS and why we need both here:

 Finally, on the size of the stuff hosted in SVN, Alan already explained in
 comment:3 that only the package definition files are stored in SVN, not
 the full source tree. For instance, the total size of the GDAL dir for a
 given Ubuntu distribution is about 150k.
