Hello all,

I would like to nominate Maxim Dubinin from Russia as Charter Member.

I met Maxim at Lisbon QGIS Code sprint, and I noticed his attention to
details and solid belief in open source values.

He is the founder of GIS-Lab.info [1], the reference community of
GIS/RS specialists in Russia since 2001. He believes that information
sharing and creativity are key qualities to improve the world.
He is interested in bridging the gap between GIS and OSM community, for
example by bringing data from OSM to GIS and people from GIS to OSM.
[2]. He is most noticeably a stable QGIS contributor and translator
[3]. He founded NextGIS [4], so far the only opensource geospatial
solutions provider focusing on Russia.

I believe that he would be a great Charter member, thanks to his
long-time experience with open source geospatial, and his human
qualities altogether.
You can read more about him on his personal page on OSGeo Wiki [5].
