Yes it is great that things are going well.  However, making GRASS a gnu
project would not be in the best interest of the community.  GRASS is a
specialized piece of software that is not suited for general public use.  Rich

Shephard had a good bit to say about this in the general GRASS Users
forum.  We tend to agree that we should keep GRASS under our control
rather than turn it over to the Gnu project.
