Subject: [gentoo-dev] Geographic Information System team ?
Date: Tue, 26 Apr 2005 10:10:44
1 Hi all,
2 I'm new on this list, so I quickly present myself. I currently work
3 for the entreprise 01map which is specialised on providing a Geographic
4 Information System solution, this is done principaly for the french
5 administrations (as for exemple the Environment Ministery
6 in french only
7 sorry ... ). We are especialy involved in the postgis development for
8 which we contribute (Gerald Fenoy and Jean David Techer are from
9 01map), but also with all the dependanced projects as for instance :
10 mapserver.
12 I would like to know if there is any GIS team (not for Gentoo
13 Installation System but for Geographic Information System ...) or any
14 effort on that way ?
16 Indeed, I could see that the postgis ebuild is so old, we currently
17 work with the 1.0 version but the postgis ebuild is for 0.7 version ...
18 I've also seen that there is some purposes to include the postgis
19 directly into the postgresql ebuild, but do you know that the futurs
20 versions (it's already the case for the cvs one) don't need at all the
21 postgresql sources to compile it ?
23 Futhermore the postgis ebuild is used but there is no geos ebuild in
24 portage (but I've already made it too) so postgis will be less usefull
25 as it could be with it (geos provide functionalities for using all
26 known projections systems).
28 With our "postgis developers" team we have also made an update of the
29 qgis ebuild to work with the lastest postgis version (which has the
30 geos support) ebuild we also made.
32 To conclude I give you the tree of our work on the Geographic
33 Information System :
35 dev-db/postgis
36 dev-db/postgis-cvs
37 sci-libs/geos
38 sci-geosciences/mapserver
39 sci-geosciences/cartoweb (which use the webapp-config system)
41 here is the list of the ebuilds developped by others contributors of
42 our independant project :
44 sci-geosciences/qgis
47 I hope that you've understand my query to create a new team specialy
48 involved on developping and *maintaining* more GIS relatives ebuilds.
50 Cordialy.
