MapServer Foundation

Monday marked the launch of the MapServer Foundation, a “nonprofit legal entity established to support the needs of the open source web mapping community.” Included among the 11 people who created the MapServer Foundation are Steve Lime, the creator and lead developer of MapServer, and Tyler Mitchell, geographer and author of Web Mapping Illustrated. The website has just gotten up and running, but it does have an open letter announcing the creation of the foundation, an FAQs section, and some other resources.
