Dear all,

I'd like to nominate Margherita Di Leo, aka madi [0], as Charter Member.

Margherita is about to complete her PhD program in hydrology and for her
daily work uses and teaches geospatial open source software and
develops GRASS GIS in particular. She is an active and enthusiast
promoter of the benefits of open source over proprietary software in
research. She constantly helps university students in the installation
of OSGeo software on various platforms, and promotes OSGeo Live, even
overseas! [1].
She participated as student at the GSoC program 2011 with OSGeo/GRASS

She is involved in several activities to promote open source,
organizing conferences such as Linux Day within the Linux User Group,
giving talks on the topic of geospatial open source software. Since
2009 she is active member of GFOSS.it, the Italian OSGeo local chapter,
and is currently involved in the organising committee of GFOSSDAY 2011
[2, in Italian].

I believe she would be a great asset for OSGeo, as a contributor,
enthusiastic promoter as well as a further step towards fair gender
representation within OSGeo! 

best regards,
