Dear Jody

I'm a bit disappointed about this request. Many people were seconded as charter members simply typing +1 and the name of the person seconding.

Why do you want more explanation from Hayashi-san and Kenya-san and you didn't ask in other cases?

Hayashi-san and Kenya-san  are our charter members (they have the characteristics that you had listed). To better say, they are great charter members, relevant contributors to the Japanese and Asian Community. They don't deserve a behaviour different from all the other charter members. We didn't request explanation about the support, only about nomination. Please don't frustrate the volunteers of our community creating differential requests. Obviosly Hayashi and Kenya are able to provide pieces of information but they are also asking themselves why this different behaviour with them. And me too, I ask you: why? do you have some pieces of information about the people who were nominated that I don't have?

Can I ask the people who have seconded this nomination to provide information on what positive attribute Dr. Anujit Vansarochana displays in the our community to be considered as a charter member.

For reference here is the positive attributes<https://wiki.osgeo.org/wiki/Membership_Process#Positive_Attributes> list from the membership process we are following:

Recommended membership selection criteria include:

  *   Members should believe in the general goals of the Foundation. To support and promote the use of free and open source geospatial software, education and data in a collaborative manner.
  *   Previous participation in or support of OSGeo activities
  *   The person should already have made a contribution to free and open source geospatial software, education or open data.
  *   The person should be willing to put in time and effort on the Foundation, perhaps joining committee(s), or volunteering in some other way that gets the Foundation going.
  *   Members should be prepared to work constructively and positively towards the goals of the Foundation. Good teamwork skills are an asset.

Membership nominations should strive to promote diversity:

  *   Nominate members representing a diversity of geographic regions, diversity of projects, diversity of programming languages.
  *   Nominate members representing and diversity of interests (e.g., corporate, hobbyist, educational, scientific).
  *   Nominate members representing a diversity of humanity including gender and race

This is a reference to my own ignorance of Dr. Anujit Vansarochana activities and no slight is intended or implied. I have tried to search the discussion email list, geoforall email list and osgeo wiki to learn more.
