I'd like to nominate Nikos Ves for OSGeo charter membership.
Nikos is an agricultural engineer from Aristoteleio University of
Thessaloniki (Auth), Greece. He got involved with GFOSS during his Msc
courses, and since then he's promoting it in academic environment and
research while helping others in whatever problems they have (orientation,
suggestions of right tools, bug hunting).
I met Nikos during the GRASS GIS Community Sprint in Genova, Italy where he
managed to translate about 20% of GRASS to Greek. [0].
He's very active in gis.stackexcange forums helping other members with
their GFOSS problems, mainly with gdal, postgis and python [1].
