I asked him: it is the same as in the last 2 years: Limesurvey.

I have done that (also Martin L could do) by querying the registered

  38 GRASS Core developers
  79 GRASS Addon developers
 117 total

A few names are double, so unique names:
 105 total

Like the QGIS project (AFAIK), we could add the translators:
100 translators

The questions are
- how get get in the power users, how to "identify" them?
- and: how to contact all people mentioned above? Those with OSGeo ID
I can lookup in the system, the CSV tables are fine, too. Mass

Let's complete this pre-round here, then I am happy to bring it up
there with a concrete proposal we agree upon in this list.
