I strongly support the nomination of Frank Warmerdam. He has proven to
be an invaluable resource on the board of directors. His ability to
quickly and thoroughly understand and analyze complex issues is pretty
unparalleled. Amazingly he can apply this to both technology and
community functioning.

I absolutely trust Frank to contribute and lead OSGeo in the best
interest of the broader community and at a sustainable pace. I admire
the amount of time and consistency he puts into helping to run OSGeo
and would very much welcome him on the board of directors again.

Best regards,
