Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] [Projects] OSGeo Budget 2021

2021-01-27 Thread Jody Garnett
With the topic of sponsorship also in the mix perhaps we can add a column
for "donations/sponsorship" for the different projects and committees.
This would communicate the budget each is working with, the commitment from
osgeo, and the financial support from their community.

Thanks,

A couple of notes:
- For GeoServer it shows $11,420 in 2020, that should be split between 2019
budget and 2020 budget?
- We also have some fundraising / donations in the mix.

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] OGC certification fees - Is there a common agreement with OSGeo

2020-10-24 Thread Jody Garnett
I think there is a MOU between OSGeo and OGC to handle this sort of thing,
see website (https://www.osgeo.org/partners/ogc/), OSGeo also has
interoperability as one of the groups goals (so it is a good activity to
request funding for).

Each question looks like it goes to a different group, osgeo likes email

email contacts in osgeo (presid...@osgeo.org, i...@osgeo.org, etc).

Indeed let me move this email to disc...@osgeo.org so others can follow
along, and more importantly correct me when I am wrong :)

There is a document on how funding works with OSGeo (in short you show up

Okay I added: NetCDF, CF, and UGRID (they apparently form a hierarchy)

None, the community program is strictly about building community and

in but nothing mandatory.
OSGeo Committees, and full OSGeo projects are a committee, end up
participating in annual budget discussion and annual general meeting.

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] A young project: OSArch

2020-09-08 Thread Jody Garnett
There are a couple presentations, but the key thing is the checklist we use

during our incubation process.

The theme is to recognize that open source and free software are *just* a
license, primarily focused on software distribution. As a group we
experiment with taking that "open" attitude and see it applied to other
aspects of software and community development.

Some presentations:

   - Open Source Practice and Passion at OSGeo
   

-
   talks through the checklist providing some context
   - Open Source procurement
    - looks a
   bit more at the risks be addressed
   - The FOSS4G Journey
   

-
   covers some of how the grass community spun out first OGC, and then teamed
   up with others for from OSGeo

[OSGeo-Discuss] opensource initiative clearly defined tool

2020-08-14 Thread Jody Garnett
Wanted to pass on to a link provided by the open source initiative (
https://opensource.org). As you know OSGeo relies on OSI to short-list free
software and open source licenses that are acceptable to the Foundation.
And then OSGeo adds on a host of additional requirements to ensure our
projects are open in other respects (communication, decisions, docs, ...).

OSI started a group https://clearlydefined.io/about that looks at some of
these other concerns and may be of interest to folks here.

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] Free licensed alternative to ESRI map fonts

2020-07-24 Thread Jody Garnett
The PDF is a really “just tell us your idea” rather than  “pretend
everything is a code sprint”  (which was previously the only document with
clear instructions on how to apply for funding).

I am really glad to see this idea go ahead, there are several traditional
reasons for avoiding open source: GeoForAll meets the “lack of educational
materials goal”, a font can help meet the “I have to follow official
cartography goal”, advocacy can help meet the “huh?” confusion :)

Make a proposal to the board if you want to set this up as a cross project
initiative.

Marketing board would happy to accept your proposal also (this is a barrier
to adoption).

Approach project PSC individually also works.

There is a PDF on osgeo GitHub on how to do this kind of thing ...

That is good to know, it still may be worth having a short list by default
(since the number of SRS items is often held against geoserver in
performance shootouts).

How often do you collect these stats? Or is it the first time ... it would
be interesting to know how market share changes over time.

Surprisingly nobody has made a motion to start with a smaller list, and I
think we found that if we provided a smaller list folks assume GeoServer is
less capable.
What do other WMS implementations do?

This discussion starts to get into the value, it is a lot of work to gather
up these original or alternate sources ... both for end users migrating to
open source, and for OSGeo projects to do on their own.

I think this would be a great group project.

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] Free licensed alternative to ESRI map fonts

2020-05-12 Thread Jody Garnett
Note this is quite the legal trap, many governments have contributed to
these fonts, and then are not in a position to use the result with open
source software such as GeoServer (even though we have TTF symbol support).

Specifically for the US fonts above it may be possible to source the
original marks directly from the departments involved via public domain,
and then as a citizen contribute marks. You can see gvsig working on this
kind of issue here
<https://blog.gvsig.org/2013/06/03/gvsig-2-0-forestry-symbol-library/>.

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] License for documentation

2020-02-28 Thread Jody Garnett
In general osgeo recommends use of Creative Commons license for
documentation, in order afford writers the same "remix" culture we enjoy in
our open source projects. The alternative is of course the writing practice
of "quoting" and "citation" but does does not provide the same ability to
format shift and otherwise enjoy playing with words.

As example GeoTools license page:
https://docs.geotools.org/latest/userguide/welcome/license.html

It is a pain when folks try and use open source licenses to cover
documentation as it does not really fit :)

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] checking closure of legal descriptions

2020-01-26 Thread Jody Garnett
OSGeo is a community of folks making use of and developing open source
applications.

What you are describing is a very difficult issue (and a request I have
seen before). Indeed I watched a good presentation on the topic at one of
our foss4g events.

I do not know of any open source team working on managing legal boundaries,
perhaps others here would be interested in joining you.

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] Improving usability of INSPIRE data in FOSS4G client applications

2019-12-21 Thread Jody Garnett
I think my point was that there is often funding available for servers to
make new standards available; but without funding libraries to make new
standards accessible *to developers* these activities follow the "build it
and they will come" hope of the field of dreams movie.

I encourage everyone involved to look at the bigger whole-use architecture
picture, identify weak areas and seek out funding/collaboration/advocacy
opportunities. We are notoriously poor at funding core library development,
required to make services available to developers. I appreciate you current
activity evaluating client applications as a step in identifying gaps;
perhaps JRC can reach out to the new OSGeo board as they identify community
and partner goals for 2020 :)

aside: One of my hopes for the new OGCAPI activities is that they include
an OpenAPI REST endpoint that can be used to generate very simple clients
to talk to specific datasets. This will make geospatial data available to a
wider developer community, but it comes at some tradeoffs. I expect the
servers to be less capable initially (something we we can work on over
time) and I expect many of the resulting applications to be brittle (with a
hard coded generated client that will break as data products change).

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] GeoServer CITE Test Automation Request for Proposal

2019-12-12 Thread Jody Garnett
Thank you Dirk,

Updated for today is that the PSC has select a successful proposal form
GeoSolutions, and I confirmed I can upload this proposal to our wiki for
interested parties.

Our RFP outlined a solid requirement to work with the CITE Team repos as
provided (and not fork this time). So expect some more
collaboration/feedback from our community.


We would really like to see the CITE team participate i our OSGeo community
sprints and collaborate directly on these activities. Indeed CITE took part
in last years sprint and worked a bit on the OSGeo "incubation" graduation
checklist which was great to see (CITE is part of the osgeo community
projects, and was accepted into the incubation process but has not shown
much progress yet).

Well in this case we have had several false starts, simply too big an
activity to tackle on volunteer time.

The GeoServer PSC is voting on a received proposal now, primarily based
around docker images. The resulting work will be public (and could be

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] Regarding visiting OSGeo - KOSSA

2019-09-23 Thread Jody Garnett
Hyoshin Nam:

OSGeo is an international organization with members all over the world
(including a wonderful local chapter in Korea <http://www.osgeo.kr>). OSGeo
does not have a physical location in Boston, although we have some of our
members who live there and may be able to talk with you.

Please note that many of our software projects are developed in a
distributed fashion, allowing your software developers and system managers
to participate remotely. As an example I work on a project GeoServer
<http://geoserver.org> which has several opportunities for community
development <http://geoserver.org/devel/> an email list for developer
communication and a video chat every couple of weeks, and the last Friday
of each month we devote to fixing bugs.

If you do wish to talk about open source software licenses we have an
incubation
committee <https://www.osgeo.org/about/committees/incubation/> (once again
with an email list <https://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/incubator>)
which helps development teams choose a license and set up their projects.

Finally our software foundation occasionally enters into
strategic partnership with industry development groups such as yours. We
have a page on partners and friends <https://www.osgeo.org/partners/> you
can look at for examples. Partners have a formal agreement, friends have a
history of collaboration but no formal agreement in place.

If you check out the yearly AGM slides you can see estimates from a range
of sources (OSGeo userid, wiki logins, charter members, etc...).

There are a lot of great folks in the local chapters that are missed in

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] OSGeo AGM 2019 - FOSS4G Bucharest

2019-07-23 Thread Jody Garnett
Thanks Maria, I will fill in for GeoTools.

I liked the format where we got all the projects up on stage and passed the
microphone to keep the pauses down, I set up the slide deck with that in
mind.

For projects we ask that project officers (or their representative) attend
that AGM or make plans to attend a board meeting - we really want to know
how the project is doing (looking for more a project *team* update, rather
than a summary of new features). Even if you cannot attend the AGM please
add a slide into the mix anyways (as these slides are very useful after the
event to share what is going on). Indeed you can have more facts on the
slide than speaking allows time for.  As a board we are looking to see if
the budget provided has been effective and what challenges/opportunities
the team is looking towards.

The AGM also includes community projects that are joining us this year, if
you need access to edit please request.

Thank you Nobusuke! You should be all setup now (made you an editor also so
you can publish once you write the page).

In addition to adding a new event <http://www.osgeo.org/events/> you should
also be able to edit the local chapter page
<https://www.osgeo.org/local-chapters/osgeo-japan-chapter/> (which looks
very empty).

You can create an event page using your OSGeo ID (

Depending on what you want to work on you may need to request an additional

Please reach out to the GeoMesa mailing list or Gitter channel. The Gitter

[OSGeo-Discuss] foss4g osgeo booth

2019-06-12 Thread Jody Garnett
The last couple of years the OSGeo members have helped set up a booth for
our global foss4g conference. Indeed we had a great lounge space last year
that Jeff McKenna and other volunteers used to great effect.

This is a case of individuals stepping up to make it happen, I would like
to ask who is interested and who is available to help.

FOSS4G is a great conference and making sure OSGeo attends "in person" is
important - this is a chance to promote *freedom* to attendees who think
they are attending a *technology* conference :)

[OSGeo-Discuss] Budget and Money Guidance

2019-05-24 Thread Jody Garnett
Recently passed by the board, and cleaned up during the code sprint, OSGeo
has a new document
<https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Board_of_Directors#Documents> offering
guidance Budget and Money Guidance
<https://wiki.osgeo.org/images/5/54/Osgeo_financial_guidence.pdf> for
projects, committees, initiatives and events.

One theme I hope is evident is in the above document is that OSGeo is
volunteer lead, people power everything we do.

Once nice idea from foss4gna was to recognize those participating in the

We had the advantage of having the sprint beforehand so we could see who

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] Download server has moved and requires SSH key access to upload

2019-05-10 Thread Jody Garnett
We only have one server (build.geoserver.org) that needs to upload.

The key thing is access, many of the build systems use the following to
access the repository:

  
osgeo
Open Source Geospatial Foundation Repository
http://download.osgeo.org/webdav/geotools/

  

This use case should not require any credentials (and no amount of handing
out credentials will fix).

[OSGeo-Discuss] good article on open source considerations

2019-04-02 Thread Jody Garnett
Now that open source is a established part of the IT landscape we can start
to see well thought out articles; which are much harder to answer then the
FUD we encountered earlier in the adoption curve.

https://blog.wolfram.com/2019/04/02/why-wolfram-tech-isnt-open-source-a-dozen-reasons/

It is worth thinking through these topics as we still have a lot of
advocacy work to do in our mapping/location industry.

In the specific case of wolfram I love the work and RnD they have done.
Would much rather see symbolic computing (and so on..) have a wider reach
into more fields then be bottled up by one company. Long term I think that
will occur. Short term I like that the open science is taking folks away
from replying on their tools from a “good science is reproducible science”
standpoint.

Gotten a couple folks asking for an update, the budget has indeed passed:

   - https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/OSGeo_Budget_2019

The vast majority of budget request have been met as requested, with the
board scaling back some of its own activities, and combing events and code
sprints to make this happen.

For the details on how to work with your budget we have some draft being
assembled here <https://git.osgeo.org/gitea/osgeo/todo/issues/30> (TLDR:
OSGeo trusts you, work with your committee officer, officer contacts the
treasurer as needed).

If you have questions please reply to this email thread, or contact a board

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] Gender neutral default image on webpage

I wonder if it is worth removing the gravatar integration. If is not
sufficient for our needs?

Your feedback makes me think we should hide entries that don’t have a
photo.

My thinking is part of the point of the website is to show that open source
is made by people. Pages and pages of placeholder photos make us look like
the faceless mob that protential adopters are told to fear to trust.

Would rather fewer people with real faces from an outreach standpoint.

[OSGeo-Discuss] Flickr FOSS4G and OSGeo photo history deadline Feb 5th

2019-01-25 Thread Jody Garnett
As covered on discuss a couple months ago, And covered in the board meeting
on Monday:

Our OSGeo, FOSS4G and FOSS4G-NA photos on flicker may be reduced on Feb 5th
as some photos are removed.

Since these photos were shared with our groups we do not really know which
ones will be removed. Photographers are asked to subscribe with a monthly
fee (or have a limit of 1000 photos).

It is not really possible for us as a group to do much, which is a shame
for the internet as Flickr has a wide range of CC images (since they did a
good job of explaining open licenses and making them easily to use.)

Q: Can we throw the images on OSGeo next cloud?

Q: Should we only copy the CC images? Or should we copy everything and try
and reach authors before sharing?

Aside: Many participants missed the CC license step - which is too bad as
it is a good “first time” experience at contributing open content.

Q: Anyone know of an API we could use to grab our images?

Q: Any other Flickr groups we should capture for our history?

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] [Marketing] OSGeo web style guide

2018-12-10 Thread Jody Garnett
Oh wow that is *great* thank you for working on this :)

I think we should follow the PDF and combine keep it really simple:

Brand:
- follows the he logotype page

- all the dos and don't examples ...

Sub-brand:
- if it uses the OSGeo logo mark with some different text
- keeping the Logomark unmodified is what makes it a sub-brand :)
- This is the default option allowing a group to produce a logo using the
provided template

Distinct brand:
- Uses its own logomark
- Totally fine to contains some design callbacks as with GeoForAll colors,
or OSGeo live design elements
- we should probably try and keep the font consistent at least :)
- Allows a lot more creative freedom

I understand, and indeed I assumed we would go with the sub brand approach
myself. As such I am not the best person to do the pros/cons between the
ideas :)

This is a case where I love your work, and want to double check our
strategy.

The style guide is here:
https://github.com/OSGeo/osgeo/tree/master/marketing/branding

The summary has:

*Logos are as provided for OSGeo and sub-brands (all of which include the

Chance for collaboration rather than complaints, I think everyone can see
the design limitation.

Our OSGeo compass outline does not "quite" work, since there is not much
room for the project identify inside. I think we had sub branding as a
priority we would of done it a little bit different.

Yeah and that is the logo of the company so ... not the best logo for the

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] okay foss4g time to move off of Flickr

2018-11-05 Thread Jody Garnett
I wonder if we can do so as an organization, our model for photos was to
ask individuals to upload and add to the group.

If we paid (no problem with that) we would need to share the credentials.
Or sort out if we could copy photos into our professional account.

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] [Geo4All] What is Openwashing? Is there any examples in GIS Vendors?

2018-11-02 Thread Jody Garnett
Just a note we can also use this opening marketing departments provide to
have a good conversation about what open source communities and foundations
offer beyond what even the best open washing can dress up as. We can also
include the open source companies on our service providers list as examples
of organizations that get what we are trying to do with the world.

Meanwhile enjoy the humour, and be careful to point out the differences
lease they give “open” a bad name. Each organization that is tripped up
over the difference will have a bit more experience for next time.

And if you really care about communicating these differences please join
the marketing team and lend your words to improving the world. We would
love to have you :)

Jackie if you are content with the new website location we could make a sys

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] Marketing Committee 2019 Goals and Support

2018-09-26 Thread Jody Garnett
Thanks Johnathan, let's reach out to the map guide team to fix that link
(indeed we can do so as a discussion list since this will be a common
occurrence):

So the page is - MapGuide Open Source
<https://www.osgeo.org/projects/mapguide-open-source/>

First point of contact is the project officer...
- On the website (under about osgeo) is a list to all the board and officers
<https://www.osgeo.org/about/board/> - the mapguide open source contact is
"VP, MapGuide Open Source: Robert Bray" - so we can CC him on this email

The mapguide page lists an email list and an issue tracker. I do not want
to sign up for a mailing list right now, but we can report the issue in the
issue tracker.

The part of our OSGeo mandate that the marketing committee is positioned to
help with is "outreach" - communicating our message to the world. We have a
number of efforts across osgeo (local chapters, geoforall and events all
come to mind).

2) Are there any folks who would be willing to help maintain and produce
> current content for OSGeo website?
>

The website is self serve by the committees and projects that make up our
community.
- GeoForAll is making good use of the facilities for example.
- The incubation committee has some work to do, helping new projects get
listed on the website.

The marketing committee has some work to do here as well and we really need
to recruit!  Writing articles (not of a technical nature) introducing how
open source represents a different approach and a different ideal for the
geospatial community. :)

During the code sprint we had some fun updating:
- https://www.osgeo.org/community/welcome/ (previously the described osgeo
taking over from the "University of Minnesota and other organizations" )
- https://www.osgeo.org/community/getting-started-osgeo/
-
https://www.osgeo.org/community/getting-started-osgeo/add-service-provider/

But more is needed:
- we need a page on how to start a local chapter
- incubation committee needs a page on how to add a project
- geoforall needs a page on how to add a geoforall lab

Metrics can be hard though:
- any interest in having analytics on the site so we can see what is
effective?
- a good metric "getting started page" would be new people signing up for
disc...@osgeo.org and emailing an introduction

[OSGeo-Discuss] Java 11 code sprint taking shape for October 22-26th

2018-09-17 Thread Jody Garnett
When:  October 22-26th
Where: North America (Victoria, BC), Europe (Italy or UK proposed), Oceania
(recommendations welcome)
Wiki: https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Java_2018_Code_Sprint

If you or your project is interested in taking part, even remotely, please
add yourself to the above wiki page!

The Java community has a challenge ahead, with recent policy changes
setting the Java platform on a six-month release cycle. We also have a *python3
moment* as our open source libraries are tasked with upgrading to the use
of the "jigsaw" module system.

Top level applications like GeoServer and GeoNetwork need to make some
changes in order to run at all. Mostly this requires a dependency review,
upgrading to new libraries such as Spring 5 that are compatible with Java
11. Many of these libraries are broken due to changes to how reflection is
handled.

Java libraries like JTS and GeoTools are put in an awkward position as a
bottleneck on the safe use of the module system (see module hell problem
). A
further complication for is a restriction preventing two jars from making
use of the same package.

Planning is currently underway:

   - GSIP 171 Java 18.9 Compatibility
    (GeoServer)
   - Strategy for GeoNetwork
   

   - Restructure GeoTools into Jigsaw modules

Sadly though I could not provide a title for the resource - everything

Akash:

The google summer of code follows a set schedule, so it is some time yet
before proposals are asked for. Minimum spanning tree does look
interesting, perhaps have a look at projects like pgRouting to see how they
handle network representations and if they either have a history of
participation in GSOC or are planning to participate in 2019.

I hope you enjoy your open source journey.

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] Diversity in FOSS4G

2018-08-08 Thread Jody Garnett
Hey Mark, good on you for voicing publicly. Our ability to discuss openly
is a strength of our community, and one we are learning to use responsibly.
I saw your tweet yesterday, but find the discussion list more useful for
internal discussion such as this.

It is a hard balance between requesting or encouraging changes we want to
see vs expressing dissapointment in the activities of others. This is
especially important in a volunteer organization such as ours where
disappointment however kindly expressed can hit really moral hard
(especially as volunteers are pulling an event together).

I have been on both sides of this balance and it is never comfortable, as
you express in your struggle above. Ideally, I seek to offer my time if I
am in position to be of assistance and if the assistance is welcome.  If
not in a position to help I seek to learn or look for an opportunity for
feedback.

I learned a lot as your foss4g event planning has unfolded and your
challenges, priorities and direction became clear.

It is my hope that we will learn what challenges the foss4g-asia event is
facing and what we as an organization can do to assist.

If you have been following the board meetings the Sri Lanka
<https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Sri_Lanka> chapter is just being officially
recognized (and the membership shows some diversity). OSGeo has also set
aside funding for our president to attend the foss4g-asia event.

I thought CRO adds people via nomination processs. We are very careful not
to spam the list as the only responsibility we ask of charter members is
elections.

But registering for the website *is* elections since CRO is having trouble
keeping contacts up to date now that there are so many.

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] Charter members list

2018-07-16 Thread Jody Garnett
Since this is the charter members list, many of the names present are
active on the different mailing lists - but not on disc...@osgeo.org.

There is a charter-memb...@osgeo.org email list (traditionally used by CRO
to organize elections ) that we could consider using to contact the
remainder.

Congrats to the deegree team :)

Is the deegree project taking any steps to be compatible with the Java 18.9
roadmap? It would be good to compare notes between our osgeo java projects.

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] Free Workshop Tickets @ FOSS4G

2018-06-19 Thread Jody Garnett
Thanks for the background Mark.

Keep in mind that that OSGeo projects and committees also have a budget,
many indicated that they would assist their members with foss4g travel
and/or accommodation. For context OSGeo does ask that each project officer
attend the AGM (or send a community member to speak on their behalf).

I am one of the individuals who submitted a workshop in the hopes of
earning a conference ticket. I have enough notice that I will be able to
sort out the gap. I would like to acknowledge that earlier in my career
finding a way to earn a foss4g conference ticket was a way for me to attend
foss4g events (run a workshop, save up half the year, sofa surf based on a
generosity, etc...). For the FOSS4G 2013 event you mentioned I joined the
video team.  I recognize that this was a case was I was giving up my time,
since I had more time then money.

Personally it takes me five days to prep a 1/2 day workshop. One reason I
would like to continue to support instructors is so they take that prep
time, but perhaps we could find a balance where financial support is more
directly tied to preparation. Do something like hire an designer to help
with diagrams if initial course milestone is met etc...

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] [Geo4All] osgeo board request world wind consider joining the foundation

2018-06-12 Thread Jody Garnett
Patrick:

We do have an easy way to join, as an OSGeo community project.

This does require interest (project's ask to join) rather respect (that we
offer to all grandmothers).

OSGeo as an organization has standards we ask all our projects to meet. As
an example communicating clearly how a project functions and how new
contributors can join. In reviewing you GitHub repository I was able to
find your contact details on the CONTRIBUTING.md
<https://github.com/NASAWorldWind/WebWorldWind/blob/develop/CONTRIBUTING.md>
instructions, but could not determine the other team members (unless it is
this GitHub list <https://github.com/orgs/NASAWorldWind/people>).

If it helps GRASS, would would be the matriarch of our community, also went
through incubation to work through communication goals such as these.
