You need to set up an osgeo user id, login to the website and report back with the username also we can give you the project author role (sigh website security).

Many thanks for your email.
I have checked the criteria for joining the OSGeo Community programme and I think, MDAL meets all the requirements. I couldn't find how I can add a project page. I presume this can be done after you do your checks.
Mesh Data Abstraction Library (MDAL) is a C++ library for handling unstructured mesh data released with MIT license. It provides a single data model for multiple supported data formats. MDAL is used by QGIS for data access for mesh layers.
Why is hosting at OSGeo good for your project?
It is a generic library which we hope eventually will be incorporated into other OSGeo projects. Hence, having it under the OSGeo umbrella helps with its sustainability and support needed for such a library.
Type of application does this project represent(client, server, standalone, library, etc.):
Please describe any relationships to other open source projects.
Please describe any relationships with commercial companies or products.
The library handles a number of HDF based file formats used by proprietary and open source numerical modelling packages for hydrology, oceanography and meteorology. Development of MDAL has been so far, primarily funded by those companies.
Which open source license(s) will the source code be released under?
What is the origin of your project (commercial, experimental, thesis or other higher education, government, or some other source)?
Does the project support open standards? Which ones and to what extent? (OGC, w3c, ect.) Has the software been certified to any standard (CITE for example)? If not, is it the intention of the project owners to seek certification at some point?
The project currently supports a number of open standards for HDF and CF conventions.
Is the code free of patents, trademarks, and do you control the copyright?
Yes. it is free of patents and trademarks and we control the copyright.
How many people actively contribute (code, documentation, other?) to the project at this time?
How many people have commit access to the source code respository?
Approximately how many users are currently using this project?
All QGIS users as it is now a QGIS dependency.
What type of users does your project attract (government, commercial, hobby, academic research, etc. )?
Government, commercial, academics and research
If you do not intend to host any portion of this project using the OSGeo infrastructure, why should you be considered a member project of the OSGeo Foundation?
Does the project include an automated build and test?
What language(s) are used in this project? (C/Java/perl/etc)
What is the dominant written language (i.e. English, French, Spanish, German, etc) of the core developers?
What is the (estimated) size of a full release of this project? How many users do you expect to download the project when it is released?
It will be difficult to gauge the exact number of users. But currently, it is shipped with QGIS and probably used by 10s of thousands of users.
