    Hey @groldan - This worked like a charm and its pure magic! I love it! Well done to all involved :)

    Could anyone help me configure Geogig 1.2 with the Geoserver? At the moment I have Geoserver 2.16.1 installed. Im following the instructions to configure the Geoserver plugin using the "geogig-1.2.1-geoserver-2.12-plugin.zip" release but whenever I reach the point of checking out a Geoserver branch (say 2.16.x), I am told that "Not a git repository (or any of the parent directories): .git". Any guidance on how to connect Geogig and Geoserver

    GeoGig was rewritten so the servlet could be independent of GeoServer. I am not sure if their is a maintained geotools datastore for use in GeoServer right now.
    The instructions here (http://geogig.org/docs/interaction/geoserver_ui.html) for example may be out of date.

    @jodygarnett if GeoGig is now independent of GeoServer, do you have any recommendations/suggestions on where remote repositories can be hosted for multiple users to push and pull commits to/from?
    Jody Garnett
    @jodygarnett
    The project includes a server I think

    @m-kuhn
    Wow, I noticed that there is new release coming up, lovely to see!
    Is there information around about which operating systems are supported?
    I especially wonder if someone is running GeoGig on iOS
    Jody Garnett
    @jodygarnett
    It is a Java app, so not available on iOS
    The approach could be used, and an iOS app could be written to use the web API
    Much like how the QGIS plugin is done
    Matthias Kuhn
    @m-kuhn
    Is there a description of the web API?
    Is it possible to calculate diffs / individual commits client side to reduce data transfer volume?
    Luigi Pirelli
    @luipir
    @m-kuhn probably ls of api are changed... but an "old" base can be found in https://github.com/planetfederal/qgis-geogig-plugin
    Matthias Kuhn
    @m-kuhn
    Thanks @luipir and @jodygarnett
    Do you have any feedback on the specific question (it would be easier than trying to read through the plugin code ;) )
    Matthias Kuhn
    @m-kuhn
    @jodygarnett @groldan are there any plans or desire to add support for this kind of operation on mobile platforms?
    Or is it not wanted / not feasible / missing ressources?
    Jody Garnett
    @jodygarnett
    It was part of the plan, but boundless has packed it in.
    Idea is to make client libraries that can build up Diffs to send to that servlet
    I am sure Gab still has the design in his head. Not sure I’d code was cut.
    Matthias Kuhn
    @m-kuhn
    So that'd mean writing core parts in C++ and cross compile or writing and maintaining these pieces in parallel in several languages ?
    Jody Garnett
    @jodygarnett
    I think the diffs sent to the servlet are pretty simple problem to mange by comparison to all the version control stuff.
    So I would view this as writing a client and not writing a core part.
    Could have a look at the QGIS plugin which is just such a client to get an idea of the work involved.
    It would be GPL which prevents direct reuse of the code for iOS, but a working example is worth something.
    (Note I am not Gab or Blasby so my knowledge is second hand beyond some IP help)
    Matthias Kuhn
    @m-kuhn
    It will also need to be able to apply the diffs to merge back changes on a possibly modified local base... I guess there would be one or the other versioning challenge to master anyway.
    RE license: If it's rewritten as a client app it does not necessarily need to be GPL and iOS does not prevent GPL (it's the appstore that is ... well questionable... to put it mildly)
    Jody Garnett
    @jodygarnett
    It may be worth scheduling a chat or something with gab / blasby if you have something in mind.
    I am glad this project is at LocationTech and not lost in the wind like some other RnD :)

    I've just asked a few questions before moving forward with further development of the web api:
    worst case I can start from scratch, being the original author, despite the published repository having obliterated history
    Christian Ledermann
    @cleder
    can geogig support pointcloud versioning?
    Jody Garnett
    @jodygarnett
    it is based on geometry right now, no reason it could not take on other "well known binary" kind of data structures.
    it would be a new feature, and a fair bit of work, talk to @groldan if you wish to explore the idea.
    Christian Ledermann
    @cleder
    Cheers, I was just exploring some ideas which could have been a solved problem, no need to explore further at this time

    greetings! very cool project, but how do I install the command line utility? the links to download from eclipse.org are all broken
    Jody Garnett
    @jodygarnett
    the company that was supporting this project is no longer operating, check GitHub for some downloads https://github.com/locationtech/geogig/releases/tag/v1.2.1
    (and consider building yourself)
    @groldan the geogig.org domain is being transfer to locationtech so you should be able to have a website there again.
    Gabriel Roldan
    @groldan
    @jodygarnett that's great news thanks
    zaven
    @deepwinter
    @groldan Thanks for that! Wasn't clear from that site that the beta was the one to use. Super.

    @deepwinter
    got another question for the team. what are the performance implications for very large datasets stored using the postgres backend. particularly I am thinking about how optimized the initial checkout using a BBOX is going to be since the backend doesn't appear to postGIS/spatial indexes

    @deepwinter
    Hey team, how's around here? We've got a fairly big open source project that supports reforestation plantings, and I think we'll be making some significant use of geogig. We've put the time in to learn the commands and how it works, and it's a really great project that meats definite needs for us - awesome work! I was wondering who is around in this channel, and if there's a team member who would be willing to chat with me one on one for 20 minutes so I can resolve a few outstanding questions we have about using geogig in our GIS workflows. Let me know, and thank you! There is literally nothing else like this project that I have ever seen, really excited to have come across geogig!
    Jody Garnett
    @jodygarnett
    zaven you should reach out to groldan above with your interest.
    While geogig is indeed impresive technology there are only a couple of developers around with commit access who are available to work on it ... and only when they have contract to do so :)
    zaven
    @deepwinter
    great thank you Jody!
    Jody Garnett
    @jodygarnett
    Okay, please keep in mind that Gabe (and myself for that matter) making our living supporting open source :)
    So we tend to seek our collaborators or customers to ensure projects we love remain sustainable.
