Hi all,

I'd like to nominate Sebastiaan Couwenberg (or Bas for short) as a
charter member.
Bas has been incredibly active in the Debian GIS project (and through
that Ubuntu GIS and OSGeo live).He has packaged an enormous
amount of applications [1]. These include most of the cornerstones of
a FOSS4G system such as GDAL, GRASS and QGIS. But perhaps even more
importantly he has been active mentoring other packagers and writing
our guidelines for packaging [2].

His eye for detail often uncovered issues in many of our libraries and
programs, for which he often prepared patches, improving life even for
those of you not using Debian or Ubuntu :-)

Kind Regards,

[2] http://pkg-grass.alioth.debian.org/policy/
