Well, myself I am not shure how to react. The potential power of
OSSIM is a nice GUI (look at "OSSIM studio" or what they call it),
a workbench like KHOROS Cantata. As GRASS lacks a nice GUI which
is really intuitive and a font server support, we may use OSSIM
as a GUI for GRASS.
GRASS provides many tools, but several useful image processing
tools are missing (RADAR, stereo, CEOS reader, etc). We need
more contributors for GRASS and especially more people doing
bugfixes in existing modules. Otherwise we can never release
a "stable" version of GRASS 5...

Best wishes
