GRASS, with FDO and GDAL 'graduate'

OSGeo is announces that the GRASS, together with GDAL and FDO projects has graduated from the incubation process and is now a full fledged
OSGeo project. From the announcement:

Graduating incubation includes requirements for open community operation, a responsible project governance model, code provenance and license verification and general good project operation. Graduating incubation is the OSGeo seal of approval for a project and gives potential users of the project added confidence in the viability and safety of the project.
