Now that 0.8 is released, its time to consider OSGeo membership for
QGIS. Some of you may recall we ran a poll a while back about this issue (see
http://qgis.org/component/option,com_poll/task,results/id,12):

The results were:
  Yes            81.4%          
  Maybe                 11.5%   
  No              7.2%  

Its clear that most responders are in favor. Adding the Yes and Maybe
votes yields ~93% non-negative response. Of course there is no way to
know who voted or how many times.

At present, there is no desktop GIS application like QGIS in the
OSGeo collection. GRASS is already part of OSGeo thus joining OSGeo
seems to be a natural step.

OSGeo offers increased visibility, promotion at conferences, access
to legal advice, hosting of downloads and other project services, and
management of sponsorships. Promotion at major conferences includes
brochures and booth presence.

For information on the incubation process see: http://osgeo.org/
incubator/process/process.html.

This is your chance as a developer and/or user to comment on the issue of QGIS
joining OSGeo.

Please provide any comments or input you have to the list no later than February 1, 2007.

Looking forward to your comments,
