Motion: Extent commit access to Harsh Govind.
I am a GIS Developer at SPADAC Inc. and responsibilities include compiling and
upgrading GDAL for our products. In the past 4+ years at SPADAC I have setup
automated build process for compiling and building GDAL along with its SDE
(multiple versions of ArcSDE) and OCI drivers as plug-ins and C# wrapper for
.NET version of our product: Signature Analyst(r) (SA) [Details:
http://www.spadac.com/SignatureAnalyst/]. The build process keeps debug and
release versions separate so programmers may step into the code if required
during development. My upcoming tasks include creating separate builds for
32bit and 64bit machines.
I have implemented multiple export formats (vector) for results of SA utilizing
GDAL/ OGR. I have been involved in development of tools for reading/writing
vector data using GDAL/OGR and also using C# wrapper giving me experience in
both C++ and C# (SDE, SHP and PGDB formats in particular). E.g. Export SA
assessment as Shapefile, Read SDE data source as factor for SA, Read PGDB data
source as factor in SA, etc... I recently fixed a bug in ogrsdedatasource.cpp
which would cause a failure to return a particular layer if SDE version is
Also, I am involved in multiple tasks relating GDAL/OGR with other Team members
that include KML Super Overlay driver and supporting date query in SHP files.
Harsh and SPADAC have been contributing fixes through me and Trac and now have
several substantial improvements including a new KML Super Overlay driver they
would like to contribute. I have suggested that Harsh become a committer so
that SPADAC can more directly contribute improvements.
I'll let Harsh confirm to the mailing list that he is prepared to adhere to
the RFC 3 GDAL Committer Guidelines.
