Dear all,

the GRASS-PSC (GRASS Project Steering Commitee, see also ) formally oversees the activities
of the GRASS GIS project. It operates at a low level of complication.

Since several members stepped down in this year due to time constraints
or other reasons, we need to start the process to renew parts of the PSC.

List of current PSC members:
- Hamish Bowman
- Helena Mitasova
- Markus Neteler (chair)
- Massimiliano Cannata
- Michael Barton
- Scott Mitchell

Former PSC members:
- Brad Douglas
- Dylan Beaudette
- Paul Kelly
- Maciej Sieczka

In essence we have 4 slots available.

This is the "call for nomination" to obtain a list of people with
recognized contribution to the GRASS project.
The proposer should nominate community member(s) along
with a small paragraph describing why the candidate is
proposed as PSC member.
We'll collect the nominations on a Wiki page and figure out
how to identify the four new members if we get more than four
candidates :)
