Directions Magazine just published a Q&A about the state of geospatial jobs and occupations with some folks from Penn State in which this question appeared:

> Are you seeing positions requiring knowledge of open source software such as GRASS?

Two of the panelists answered.  One said

> More generally, the ability to create custom software solutions - whether proprietary or open source or a combination of the two - is in high demand.

which is a good, healthy response.  But the other said

> Not seeing positions posted with GRASS.

which is disappointing of course, but probably not surprising.  Would have been interesting to see if any other open source keywords (qgis? mapserver? Osm?) ever got any hits with them.
