 Thank you Lorenzo for all those good years of community building and
 open source dedication. It's sad to retire you from the Charter
 Members but I'm also happy because I know you well and I see how happy
 you are on your new life. It's been an honour to work with you at the
 Spanish Language Local Chapter you helped to build and I smile when I
 remember those years 2007 to 2010.

 I'll remove you from the Charter Members list and try to update the
 web/wiki pages to reflect your retirement respectfully.

 Have fun

 Hi all,

 OSGeo elections are about to start. The nomination period for new
 Charter Member starts tomorrow Saturday 19 of July.

 Please, consider nominating new Charter Members within the next two
 weeks and help keep the Foundation to be even more diverse,
 represented by people from even more countries, languages, profiles
 (e.g. Academic, Private, Government, etc.) and interests. For sure you
 know people that could bring new points of view and energy to OSGeo,
 so tell them about the elections and convince them to join such a

Venka, thank you for moving this.

We are supposed to have 7 rooms (at least) for the BOSs (break out
sessions).

Here the rooms available:
sala 6 (320 pax)sala 5 (250 pax)sala 3 (150 pax)sala 8 (100
pax)
sala 4 (75 pax)sala 11 (78 pax)sala 12 (90 pax)

BOFs are scheduled, for the moment, only on Wednesday afternoon, from 6 to 7
pm. The gala dinner is at 8pm of the same day.
We are checking if, with many request of BOSs we can add another slot.

I suppose that the distribution of the rooms will be made on how many
subscribers there will be in the wiki page.

This allows you special prices for the days around the conference.

But:
This online tool only allows you to make a reservation for one room at a

2. We have 455 Wanted Pages, these are pages that someone has put a link
in the text for but that don't link to an existing page. In some cases
it's due to spelling, in other's it's because no one's made a page on
that topic, and for some of those it's unlikely that anyone ever will
since it's not really relevant. Quite a few should probably external
link to project homepages.
http://wiki.osgeo.org/index.php?title=Special:WantedPageslimit=500offset=0

Cleaning up these to aspects will yield a more usable and navigable
wiki. Please if you have 5 minutes cleanup a couple of links.

If we all do a few we should be able to clean up rather quickly.

Well, personally I don't have much time, but the idea is engaging.
What I would like to see in such a platform is:
- easy to get into it. Register and contribute
- have some focus on the contribution license, it is important
  that whoever shares decides how others can reuse his work
- peer review (voting system)
- comments, possibly treaded - a discussion on each contribution
- forum, where people can discuss map making more in general
- visual, everything we talk about (style, symbols, softwares, data)
  should be accompained by at least one screenshot, the screenshot
  should appear in all listings
- categorized, so that if I'm interested in symbols I know where
  to go... maybe we more than one way to categorize stuff,
  think point symbols vs fills but also geology vs road maps



AFAIK, with a little customization (or maybe not) of Wordpress [1] you 
can do them all.
It's plenty of plugin and it's easy to manage... easier then drupal, I

Doh, interesting, and I thought it was for blog posts only...
do you have some reference in mind, like one or more

there's a huge catalog[1].
an example chosen quickly is this:
http://www.freshapps.com/
(click on a title to see details expanded and look at browse section)


Do you know any site made with wordpress that has this
kde-looks ability to show the most interesting items by
category with a screenshot, title and short description?
(the visual component is key to such a site).


it was easier than what expected to find one[2]: the Plugin directory of 
WordPress site offers a directory tree, with the number of related posts 
and a per popularity order. Then I see they have a Newest and 
Recently Updated index, guess this is not that difficult to customize.
What is lacking is the image but I still guess that should not be 
difficult to add one.

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] 3.0 OpenLayers code sprint - call for sponsorships

2008-12-18 Thread Lorenzo Becchi

Hi David,
this event seems really a good idea.

I have a couple of doubts:
why not to join the OSGeo Hacking Event in Bolsena [1] in June? 


maybe two hacking events so close in time are too many.
This year the event in Bolsena has been successful to many, afaik. Well 
at least to me.

:-)

The other problem I have is that I will go to the Spanish FOSS GIS [2] 
meting of Girona in mid march.

Hello,

This mail is a call for sponsorships to organize the « 3.0 OpenLayers
code sprint ». This event enables European OpenLayers community and
OpenLayers developers from around the world to meet.

The likelihood of an OpenLayers code sprint (for version 3.0) is taking
shape. It is scheduled to take place for 4-5 days during the month of
March 2009 in France, in a remote and isolated part of the Alps (a quiet
place to achieve better work on this major release!).

The cost of the stay (travel expenses excluded) is about 750 € per
person. As organizers, we want to cover all incurred expenses during the
event as well as the maximum of travel expenses i.e. a budget of about
10'000 € for 6 persons. Only the time spent at the event would then be
at the charge of the developers (and/or their respective
organization/company).

Any kind of support is welcome... A PayPal account is an easy means to
carry out a sponsoring activity, even a small one, as an individual or
as a company's endorsement. For a larger sponsorship, please do not
hesitate to contact me or Virginie Jourdan directly – virginie.jourdan
at camptocamp.com : we can suggest a communication partner plan (based
on OpenLayers community's sponsoring activities).

Thank you for supporting this initiative which will encourage the
promotion of French and European Open Source Geoinformatics within the
OSGeo.

Sincerely yours,

David Jonglez

[OSGeo-Discuss] OS GIS challenge on Postigis WKT raster support

2008-12-08 Thread Lorenzo Becchi

I've been reading about the Postgis Raster support initiative [1].

Pierre Racine has designed a draft of the specifications [2] and Sandro 
Santilli seams available to develop it.
The group of co-founders needs to grow, is there anybody else that want

 does
http://trac.openlayers.org/wiki/GettingHelp/ForeignLanguageSupport seem
like an appropriate way to enocurage people to seek help? Does my
suggestions for how to handle lack of speaking a language make some
sense?
  


I think this is a good initiative.
trying to be a bit critic, it is the kind of page that a person who 
knows a little of English doesn't need because they can write to the 
international list.
a person who knows nothing of English cannot understand all that text, 
probably.


To make it easy, we can maybe add links to the automatic translation to 
many different languages, ex:

--
Version en Español, linking to:
http://translate.google.es/translate?u=http%3A%2F%2Ftrac.openlayers.org%2Fwiki%2FGettingHelp%2FForeignLanguageSupportsl=entl=eshl=enie=UTF-8
--
better would be to create human translations of your text but it will 
take more time.


I think that using the language chapters as reference is a good idea. I 
would put a bigger emphasis on them.
Talking about the Spanish Language Chapter List, I can say that there 
are already some good expert on OpenLayers (and not only).

I would suggest other projects with small/medium communities to do the same.

A little note about Interested in English Language List. I would avoid 
to live this part here. If a lot of people starts to add his name there, 
that page will convert soon in a mess, loosing the target of the message.
I would leave to local chapters the organizations of list request if the 
traffic on a single project (ex: OpenLayers) starts to be aggressive.

Judging by the great feedback of Jeroen's Bolsena event last year,
I think it must be a great formula to replicate elsewhere as well.
 (Aside from the FOSS4G focused sprint).

One person to lead it, pick a spot, set a price, set a minimum
attendees and invite the developer world. Cancel if there isn't
enough interest.

Maybe unrealistic, but having a non-European event at the same
time as Bolsena event might provide some level of real-time
communication between dispersed teams who couldn't all make it to

Everyone loves a good code sprint... or do they?

2007 brought you the one-day sprint (with the GeoToolsers and uDiggers
going for an extended weekend sprint).
2008 brings you another day.
2009 is still thinking about it.

How much sprinting would you do? 1, 2, 3, 5, 7 days?

I am wondering if the right way to handle the sprints is to turn them
from something the conference quietly subsidizes to something that
OSGeo pays for directly.  That way the conference organizers don't
feel like they are having it taken out of their hide, and it can be as
long as people like. Also, it fits directly into the OSGeo mission of
promoting the development of the software.

Book-keeping-wise it's a left-pocket-to-right-pocket transaction for
OSGeo, but from a authority and decision making PoV it removes the
issue from the plate of the conference team and puts it into the hands
of the software promoting team (whomever they may be).

I  was targeting Chater Members not for their special status but for 
the reason they have been elected.

Reading a little further what David suggests in Membership page[1]:

Nominees for Charter Member status should meet the following criteria:

- The person should have already made a contribution to open source 
geospatial software.
- The person should be willing to put in time and effort on Foundation 
activities (e.g. perhaps joining committee(s), or volunteering in some 
other way that gets the foundation going).
- Members should believe in the general goals of the Foundation. To 
support and promote the use of open source geospatial software in a 
collaborative manner.
- Members selected should provide a diversity of geographic 
representation in the Foundation.
- Members selected should provide representation of a diversity of 
projects. For instance, we have a strong desire to see the java tribe 
well represented in the Foundation. We don't want the membership 
dominated by folks from just one project.
- Members selected should provide representation of a diversity of 
interests (eg. corporate, hobbyist, educational, scientific).
- Members should be prepared to works constructively and positively 
towards the goals of the Foundation. Good teamwork skills are an asset.



I think this criteria are what I would like to see represented in the 
blog of this community

Landon, hi
I guess that moderation should be made through mailman system
am I wrong?

The list moderators have more limited permissions; they are not able to 
change any list configuration variable, but they are allowed to tend to 
pending administration requests, including approving or rejecting held 
subscription requests, and disposing of held postings. Of course, the 
list administrators can also tend to pending requests.



I think we should ask SAC (in CC) to kindly make a mailing list and set

and easier to

hand off the job to someone new after a while.

I think it would be prudent to consider the jobs mailing list 
and associated
job finding resources an activity of the web committee though 
that distinction
is likely not too important most of the time.  But if we want 
to get approval
for a plan, that could be the place.  And it will be the web 
committee that

provides our web presence once we move onto the main site.

Hi,

I would like to give my 2 cent's. OSGeo is an internationnal fundation, which 
means a lot of people from differents countries AND langages. However, all 
this website seems only speaking english, they are, may be, only here for 
example. It seems important to me to take care for I18n and localization.


Which means : link to local website which can propose job offers/resume, or an 
interface with several langages as OSGeo did for its own website.





Local chapters can both provide and consume a geoRSS feed?  Not sure how
you'd go about charging advertisers in that sort of scenario, but just a
thought.

  

Thanks,

Something like this, at least at the moment, is going to be relatively low

and they do show up but not that often. That says to me that partnering
with existing sites would be more efficient and would result in broader
access.

For the GJC one idea might be to update the job schema to allow posters to
flag postings that have requirements for Open Source skills. Then I could
create RSS or GeoRSS feeds for just those types of positions. There has
also been talk of setting up a contracts section were shorter term
contact positions.

If there was a way to search for postings that were optionally marked
as open source or even OSGeo Projects friendly - that would meet
my needs.  Also, if we were able to ingest the RSS feed (specifically
for open source ones) - that we could possibly display the last
couple jobs in a component on the OSGeo web site.

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.)

We prefer to use CD instead of DVD because many
of the particpants do not have access to DVD reader in
their home countries. 


I do agree, one solution we though with Luca was to create a liveCD for 
desktop applications and documentation and a  server LiveCD with minimal 
or no X11 (graphic interface) to store data and offer Web Services for 
desktop clients.


Luca is working acutally at the server edition. hope to offer something

Re: [OSGeo-Discuss] packaging FOSS GIS for Ubuntu in education

2007-10-26 Thread Lorenzo Becchi

Cameron analysis is clear and well centered to me.
With others, we've started trying to do something in this direction 
since one year ago.
it is clear to us that if we base the development of such a platform on 
volunteers, we will need a long time to succeed. lng time.
If we want something for the next year, an investment in time and money 
is needed.
I know geeks capable to do the technical part (see: Luca, Jachym and 
Frankie) but I don't know who's interested to invest enough money on 
such a project.


with Luca, as a challenge, we've decided to make a donation program for 
our liveCd. In one year we've collected around 500€ (200 are mine) and 
we barely pay bandwidth, for the external host. This is just an example, 
we are not the only ones, but it's clear that without investments there 
will be poor future for such a thing.

from the other side, downloads are growing continuously.

try to search for GIS live Cd on google, and try to list projects that 
made more then one distro for longer then a year. Please, don't stop 
reading google list, go and see those pages, most of projects barely 
have a home page or are off since long.

Cameron Shorter wrote:

Gavin, I think the time is ripe to consolidate upon this goal.
I'd like to expand the goal a bit and then break it down into 
achievable steps.


*The goal:*
Powerful, Simple, Used, Integrated, Open Source Geospatial Applications

*Current status*
We already have powerful applications, but we still need geeks if you 
want to install and then use a full stack of OSGeo software.
Our applications are often easy to install by themselves, but project 
release schedules are independent of each other and it is hard to keep 
up with which versions of software work with each other.
Documentation and training material is still in an early phase. This 
material needs to be cross project, and matched to the software 
versions too.


*Key Steps*
*Set up project version dependency table*
A table which lists for each project version, the other project 
versions it depends upon.
This dependency table can be used by UbuntuGIS, DebianGIS, liveCD, a 
windows packager etc.
For this we should be able to tap into expertise from liveCD and linux 
distribution communities.
Once this dependency table exists, the onus on maintaining it will 
become the responsibility of projects (and become an entry criteria 
for OSGeo projects).
For efficiency, it would probably help to set a release timetable for 
snap shots of the dependency list, which should be timed to link with 
with other distributions.


*OSGeo Workshops  Tutorials*
* I see an immediate opportunity to present OSGeo Workshops at 
Geospatial Conferences. Agencies want to learn about OSGeo, and 
workshops are a great advertising tool for companies looking for OSGeo 
work.
* Together we can collectively build some quality documentation here, 
and we have the resources (potential presenters) to develop the 
documentation.
* These workshops require a stable set of software, so should be able 
to seed the dependency table as well.


*Further documentation*
Comprehensive documentation which has already started in the education 
committee should be able to tap into and get a boost from the 
workshops and tutorials. I'll let others comment on the path this 
should take.



Gavin Fleming wrote:

While Venka is on the topic of packaging FOSS GIS for Ubuntu, I'd like
to put a niche request / challenge to the community.

High schools in South Africa and elsewhere need a FOSS alternative to
use and teach GIS, which is a compulsory part of the syllabus from this
year. FOSS GIS at present is too inaccessible. My challenge is to have a
packaged CD for Ubuntu to launch at FOSS4G2008 in Cape Town. This CD (or
DVD) would have:

-one-click installation for Linux, Windows or Mac.
-Integrated software stack so teachers and learners have to launch a
minimal number of applications
-Simplified and customised GUIs to lower the entry threshold.
-for teachers to teach curriculum requirements of GIS
-for teachers to use GIS to teach geography and other subjects
-for learners to use for hands-on work
-Free, integrated global and local data package
-excellent documentation
-framework for local contributors to structure and contribute exercises,
lessons, etc. -central website for resources -possible advanced 
options for network deployment, more sophisticated

users, 'computer studies' learners (i.e. developers), school web map
services, etc.

Any takers?

Gavin

well I see there are good reasons from all sides.


I guess that for announcements there is the announcements list;   IMO 
standards is a pretty complex thread and could cause a high traffic time 
to time.
There are 4 OGC meeting a year, would be nice to coordinate for each 
meeting and give support to subscribed participants filling 
recommendation or whatever else.
The coordination can go from a very technical level, as for each 
standard specification,  to a very practical one (who will attend 
meetings, when, who can support even offering a bed, whatever...).
This is the grade of coordination I dream to reach. I don't know if 
there is the critical mass to start such a debate but I hope it.
If we are at least 10 persons interested to reach such a target, who 
knows when, I guess a dedicated list would be useful.


Then the Wiki can be very useful too.

I have to admit I still don't know which is the level of support I can 
give to such an initiative, I'm a lamer on many aspects about standards.
Anyway I've lately spent and I'll spend a lot of time playing/developing 
on OGC standards in the near future and I hope to have soon a better 
overview of standards related issues.


we can always decide it is not yet the moment to try to coordinate.

I guess this thread is pretty hot, there are many sub-threads and maybe 
a good solution could be to set up a mailing list, for the beginning, 
as: ogc AT osgeo.org
Trying to be practical I can offer myself to administer the list as I'm 
doing with the Spanish Chapter and the Spanish GIS Book.


There  will be the possibility to define possible actions, participation 
to OGC meeting, support to OSGeo new standards (as for Tile Map 
Service), creating or not a Committee ecc ecc.
I guess we can, as minimum target, set up a lobby of OSGeo softwares to 
promote effective interoperability of OGC standards.

[OSGeo-Discuss] Spanish Language Local Chapter

2007-03-10 Thread Lorenzo Becchi

A process to form a Spanish Language Local Chapter has begun.

As references we actually have an OSGeo wiki page:
http://wiki.osgeo.org/index.php/Spanish

and an OSGeo Mailing List:
http://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/spanish
This 2 days old mailing list has already 48 subscribers from different 
countries.


Debating with Arnulf Christl, we've decided to join our efforts with the 
previous attempt to form a Sudamerica chapter.

http://wiki.osgeo.org/index.php/Sudamerica
This is not a definitive solution but we invite everybody to form a 
strong and widespread community.

Even the Local Chapter name has to be decided.

Who's interested forming this Local Chapter is invited to add it's name 
under the Lista de Interesados:
