Hi Stefano, Bart, all,

I simply sent my nomination to solkatzaward at osgeo.org and CC'd Discuss -
I did this on my own doing.  I don't have a blog, so my opinions are
posted through mailing lists, so I don't see an issue with posting my
thoughts here in public.  In fact I am very proud to post my nomination
for Venka publicly.

Although now it seems I was wrong.
