I would like to second Daniel's nomination for charter member!
Daniel has been excellent in serving as part of the Earthzine's
editorial team and it has been always a pleasure for me to collaborate
Margherita covered most aspects of his professional/open source
involvement; I will just add that he is a great guy!
Please support him to better serve and support the community as OSGEO

I'd like to nominate Daniel McInerney for charter membership. He is a
researcher at the Laboratoire des Sciences du Climat et de l'Environnement
in Paris with a strong background in forest monitoring using optical remote
sensing. He is also a big supporter of Open Science.
I had the honor to work with him at the European Commission, JRC , where
he had been developing open source tools and applications in the context of
the European Forest Data Centre , the European Forest Fire Information
System  and the Forestry Work Package of the EuroGEOSS project .
Furthermore, he has been working in close contact with the INSPIRE  team
and is an expert in OGC standards.
He's also a proficient GRASS GIS power user and offered his support for the
new GRASS website's contents and GRASS tutorial . He is also a power
user of GDAL/OGR, QGIS, UMN Mapserver and R Statistics.
Daniel is always prompt in offering his help to colleagues and users and
his good mood and professionality make him a natural OSGeo advocate.
Finally, let me just mention for the sake of OSGeo representation
diversity, that, in case of his election, he would be the first
representative from Ireland!
