I agree with Paul. Unfortunately I am in a similar situation, and
cannot really dedicate enough time to GRASS to justify being on the
PSC. I can see this situation changing in the near future, but I am
sure that there are others out there who have more time to dedicate to
the project. I'll continue to lurk on the mailing list and eventually
get back into GRASS development.

Thanks for all of the hard work!
