To: CRO <cro at osgeo.org>, Václav Petráš


it is my pleasure to nominate Vaclav Petras [1] for OSGeo Charter
membership. Vaclav started to actively contribute to the GRASS project
during his studies at the Czech Technical University in Prague where I
met him as the lecturer. Vaclav together with his colleague Anna
Petrasova (formerly Kratochvilova) formed an excellent micro-team.
They are eg. authors of QGIS plugin for working with Czech cadastral
data. Vaclav is also author of several GRASS modules, he is currently
working on "Testing framework for GRASS GIS" within Google Summer of
Code project. He is studying for his PhD at NCSU under supervision of
Helena Mitasova. I am sure that the OSGeo will profit from him being a
future charter member.
