OSGeo is pleased to announce that the GeoMoose project has graduated from incubation and is now a full fledged OSGeo project. XXXX, a long time member of the GeoMoose Project Steering Committee (PSC), has been appointed as project officer.
Graduating incubation includes fulfilling requirements for open community operation, a responsible project governance model, code provenance, and general good project operation. Graduation is the OSGeo seal of approval for a project and gives potential users and the community at large an added confidence in the viability and safety of the project.
As officially sanctioned software, GeoMoose will be a featured project on the OSGeo website and joins MapServer (www.mapserver.org) as only the second program with Minnesota origins to be endorsed by OSGeo. GeoMoose software is downloadable for free, and is useable based on a MIT open source license.
Congratulations to the GeoMoose community!
