[GRASS-dev] Topographic prominence in GRASS

Hi all,

when searching for a suitable topic (smaller project) for one student
of mine I found [1,2].

Create a new GRASS module to find the topographic_prominence of peaks
from a raster elevation map within the region. (probably this would
only make up 1/4 to 1/2 of a multi-part GSoC project)

I don't know this topic enough, is there anyone who has any opinion,
suggestion or comment?

Thanks in advance, Martin
