Sean Gillies at Import Carography notes that there’s a move afoot to explore a MapServer Foundation to mange the development of that open source Web mapping software. He suggests it might be overkill, but feels strongly it should not be done in secret. The first set of discussions, instigated by Tyler Mtchell, are on what Gilles describes as a “log in” required website. I read the docs with no login required.
I don’t much about foundations, but learned something about the Apache Foundation when one of its big wigs spoke at recent Open Source GIS Conference.
