Dear all,
I strongly support Venkatesh nomination... all was already said... great
example of foss4g excellence...

I remember I support also Helena nomination last time and nobody argue
anything... this just to say that it has already been done...

Finally, I want to say that I'm proud to know such kind of excellent people
from professional and human point of view.

Thanks Jeff for nominating Venkatesh.
