Open Source Geospatial Software for Geekos
Bringing openSUSE closer to OSGeo
The Open Source Geospatial Foundation, or OSGeo, is a not-for-profit organization whose mission is to support the collaborative development of open source geospatial software, and promote its widespread use. The foundation provides financial, organizational and legal support to the broader open source geospatial community. It also serves as an independent legal entity to which community members can contribute code, funding and other resources, secure in the knowledge that their contributions will be maintained for public benefit. OSGeo also serves as an outreach and advocacy organization for the open source geospatial community, and provides a common forum and shared infrastructure for improving cross-project collaboration.
This presentation will focus on the integration of OSGeo technologies with the openSUSE project, as well as the state, history, problems and motivation of the Application:Geo project on Open Build Service.
