What the text should fulfill
- Be compatible with the current motto or have a new one.
- Longer than just a motto which can't express all.
- Be actionable: For each point demonstrate that it is not empty words by showing
- what the project did in the past and
- what we are doing now or planning for the future.
Some web text for starters
Here is some web text that could be a start.
Geographic Resources Analysis Support System, commonly referred to as GRASS GIS, is a Geographic Information System (GIS) technology built for vector and raster geospatial data management, geoprocessing, spatial modelling and visualization.
The GRASS GIS project is an international team effort that includes scientists and developers from various fields. GRASS has been under continuous development since 1982 involving a large number of federal US agencies, universities, and private companies. The development of core components and the management of releases were in charge of the Construction Engineering Research Laboratory (CERL) in Champaign, Illinois. However, since 1997 a worldwide network of developers continue to develop and release GRASS GIS. See the GRASS history section and the full list of releases for more details.
The strength and success of GRASS GIS relies on the user community. The philosophy of the GRASS GIS Development Team is to encourage users to develop their own unique tools and applications as well as to improve the existent ones
