I support the nomination of Jeff McKenna and I agree with Nicholas's

For a long time, he contributed to the spread of FOSS4G Softeware to Asia
and Europe.
Tributaries Everyone in the Japanese community loves Jeff.
He is widely known to the world after contemplating the MS4W. When the
OSGeo began, MapServer and MS4W played a contribution that could be said to
be indispensable to WebGIS at the time.
And all that he experienced from that time to now forms his OSGeo mind.
