your efforts in supporting GRASS users are greatly appreciated!
It is no shame and no secret that Baylor has not contributed much
source code lately. We know that supporting users is at least
as important as writing source code.
I hope to get more input from you about what could be made better
for the users. Unfortunalty I do not see much of the email you
get about grass. It there a way we could organise this email to
be more accessible or get the summary of the feedback to us (developers)?
There might be some problems which can be addressed from the
development side for the next versions.
From what I have understand now, we have to put even more pressure
on releasing a stable GRASS5 soon. Is Markus revised schedule going in the
I feel that together we can organise User support and development
even better and be proud of the join effort.
