Hello GRASS-dev mailing list.

Some time passed and I've been working on desing an implementation of GAL 
Framework. Currently core parts of component architecture with remote 
execution of interface methods with D-Bus library are working and bindings to 
Python are almost finished so it's time to start thinking about next steps.

I heard from Martin Landa that there is need to rewrite GRASS's raster library 
so there may be an intersection of GRASS and GAL Framework development 
effort. If you'd be interested, we may cooperate to design and implement 
raster data internal (file storage, DB storage) and presentation (API) 
representation in pure C and I'll then just enwrap this code for GAL 

I can spend next few months on this so is there a will to do something with 
rasters in GRASS? Is anyone working on this currently? Is there an 
intentions, ideas, constraints or anything else I should know about?

Thanks for your responses and if you are interested in GAL itself, you may 
visit its homepage at http://gal-framework.no-ip.org, see and article written 
for Geoinformatics FCE CTU 2007 seminar at 
http://geoinformatics.fsv.cvut.cz/wiki/index.php/GAL_Framework, or contact me 
to get further informations.
