I second this nomination as well.
I had the pleasure to work with Daniel for several years, and I can
definitely say he is an awesome scientist, a brilliant Linux power
user, and a great FOSS4G software expert.
Over all he is a passionate open source advocate, so I definitely
think it would be a great choice to propose him as a charter member.
