Dear All,

Maxi has been an active member of OSGeo foundation
and served the community well in various capacities.
He has also help to spread the spirit of FOSS4G the
worldover and I had several occasions to interact
with him at conferences and workshops in Asia and Europe.
About the Technology side story, Gérald Fenoy already introduced enough for his work.

I strongly support Maxi's nomination for re-election as
OSGeo Board Member.
