I've been participating in the new Pro Webmasters community (another Area 51
site) while waiting for the GIS site to kick off, and it's been a great
experience. I'd strongly encourage anyone with an interest in a
consolidated, open licence knowledge base for GIS to commit to this effort.
MapGuide has front-end, rendering, and processing capabilities. If
forced to choose between these, I'd probably go with rendering.
