It pains me to have to continue to write about what I consider to be faults of the new OSGeo Foundation, but as an unaffiliated developer of open source geospatial software, it's the only influence I have. I want these faults to be addressed. OSGeo must succeed, if only because its failure would wreck the wider open source geospatial domain. I've got friends who are deeply involved, and I'd like success for their sakes. I'm also worried that in this early stage, before it really finds its feet, our gentle OSGeo giant is going to stumble around and break things, or tread on worthy, but less ambitious software projects.
