OSGeo Project

PyWPS finished the OSGeo incubation process

On April 11th 2018, OSGeo Board of Directors recognized [1] PyWPS project as an official OSGeo project, thanks to the efforts of the PyWPS Project Steering committee and Tom Kralidis, our incubation mentor. The incubation process started 9 years ago [2] and was one of the longest processes within the OSGeo ecosystem. Over this time, PyWPS demonstrated [3] a stable community, evolving into version 4 with completely new code base and license change, took part on several Google Summer of Code events, formed a Project Steering Committee [4] and many more.
