Hopefully I misunderstood the request, but if OGC is really seeking a
group to help *host* their CITE test suite, i.e. the place where
software vendors run their tests when they seek certification, then I
think this is wrong. I don't think OSGeo, LocationTech, or any entity
other than OGC itself should be hosting the test suite that serves for
certification. What would people think if some proprietary software
vendors were hosting the test suite? Probably not good, right? Then why
should it be different for OSGeo or LocationTech.
As I wrote above, I probably misunderstood the request, and if all OGC
is looking for is a home for the CITE source code to grow and prosper,
then OSGeo and LocationTech are the best places, but this is different
from just hosting.
