Dear CRO, I would like you to forward this email to the discuss mailing 
list to officialise the following nomination.

Dear all,
I am glad to nominate Khalifa Abacar Sarr [1] for OSGeo Charter Member.
Khalifa is very passionate and an active promoter of OSGeo in Senegal 
where he is leading various GIS initiatives targeting West Africa. He 
contributes to GIS system by providing solutions for waste management 
system at country level using Open Source softwares. Khalifa is in 
between business and research, indeed, despite he is now involved in a 
company he is still getting a lot of activities on his own to give 
courses at the university of Dakar and others. He likes very much 
keeping good relation with student and have them involved in the 
development of new application. He likes to create relation between 
people that know and people that search to learn to make them sharing 
their knowledge.

I think that Khalifa can be areal asset for OSGeo.
