> Ben Caradoc-Davies is a longstanding member of the GeoServer community -

> recently as a independent contractor from is native New Zealand.
> As a contributor Ben has demonstrated excellent leadership (volunteering
> with the GeoServer Project Steering Committee and GeoTools Project
> Management Committee) and mentoring of new contributors by answering
> questions, offering encouragement, backed by kind words and constructive
> reviews.
> Ben is exceptionally generous with his time: willing to take on the day to
> day challenges of running a project, leading meetings, issuing multiple
> releases a year, and stepping in for emergencies. The team has come to
> depend on Ben's dedication to quality watching out for the build servers
> and monitoring the travis automated builds.

> foundation as a whole. In my time as an OSGeo board member Ben has helped
> clearly articulated our legal questions, and taken part in meetings with
> our legal council.
> I also had the privilege of organizing a foss4g-au event with Ben and
> follow his open source advocacy work in Australia.
> Although it is perhaps not a character reference I personally appreciate
> Ben's coding and communication skills. His ability to contribute code in a
> consistent, professional manner, and his communication skills make working
> on the GeoServer project that much easier.
