 Subject: [OSGeo-Discuss] projection projects
 
 I'd like to follow up on a conversation that took place at 
 FOSS4G in Victoria regarding a gathering of the open source 
 projection clan under the OSGeo umbrella.  Frank can probably 
 expand on the idea more, but the idea being that it would be 
 an opportunity to build up a community around the various 
 coordinate system projects, each of which likely wouldn't be 
 able to sustain that on their own.
 
 My immediate motivation for bringing this up now is that I 
 need to set up a project infrastructure for proj4js [1]  
 (svn, trac, email, PSC, etc.).  This might be a good fit as 
 an OSGeo 'Lab' project as discussed a few months ago, either 
 as a project on it's own or within a group of projection projects.
 
 Comments?


Glad to see this come about.  I'd be interested in seeing where the
GDAL's ogr/wcts work can fit in here.

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] How create a orthophoto with ImageLinker

2008-01-24 Thread Tyler Mitchell (OSGeo)

Hi Carlos,
Welcome to the OSGeo discussion list - sorry I don't know how to do  
what you are asking, but the OSSIM mailing list will probably be of  
more help, since ImageLinker is based on OSSIM:

https://lists.sourceforge.net/lists/listinfo/ossim-developer

Hope that helps,
Tyler

Frank,

IMO:

This is a good idea. 

I'd prefer to see a separate mailing list though.

The list could help foster a growing industry.

Subject
[OSGeo-Discuss] Job Postings / Job Wanted






Folks,

The OSGeo Service Provider Directory was implemented in response to
frequent questions I have received from folks trying to find a consultant
or integrator they could contact for implementing foss4g solutions.

Today (and certainly not for the first time) I received an email from
someone trying to find potential employees with skills in a variety of
OSGeo projects.  My question is whether there is something we can do to
address this need - and the corresponding need for folks who would like
to find potential jobs that would take advantage of their foss4g
knowledge and interest.

Would it be acceptable to have job postings on this list?   Should we
try and setup a job postings / job wanted mailing list?  Would it be
likely to get enough subscribers and postings to make this worth while?

I think of this as closely related to the recent issue about announcing
foss4g related products and services.  There are folks who want to know
and folks who need to get their message out.  But how do we put them
together in a way that is likely to get a critical mass?

Basically - it helps our goal of foss4g uptake to ensure that folks can
make these commercial / employment contacts.

Best regards,
--

not to me

Should we

it would be  the best solution to me.
everybody can subscribe just for time he/she's ready to be spammed


The lists are a great idea!

I believe such lists should be archived, so it will be possible to 
monitor posts on the web, if someone does not want to subscribe.

 I think we could combine this with a wiki page. I would be willing to
 maintain a wiki page for job postings.

There is a risk that wiki page will turn into a mess.
People want to filter, search, etc. through job postings.
Also, it would be nice to have simple 3-5 fields form for submissions.
Mailing list archives provide such options. Though, mailing list seems 
to be/is spam prone.

How much of work would be required to prepare form + generate job offers

listing on the website using Drupal features, as Tyler suggested
already?

Perhaps it would be worth to spend some time to prepare small engine
and than to organize long term maintenance procedure.

Mailing list
-mailman has already a moderation system

Wiki
- surely a mess:
- to post something you need to know how Wiki syntax works
- moderation is so difficult because you don't have a cue and have to 
look at any change.


Web Form
- needs development
- needs moderation too
- doesn't offer public debate (can you please refine your offer?!?, 
I'm not sure what you want to say about..., ecc.)
