It is also my understanding that GrassClippings is pretty much dead due
to lack of time, money, subscribers, and an editor or some combination
like that. This is very unfortunate as GrassClippings was very useful
to the GRASS community in numerous ways. It provided contact to the
community for people without internet access. It was also reasonably
brief. grassu and grassp have so much traffic that one can not keep up.
Moreover, GrassClippings gave the community a place to publish well
thought out articles. Also, at one time GRASS had a small commercial
vendor group, and GrassClippings provided an ideal place for them to
advertise. I don't know where or how they advertise now, and this is
unfortunate because GRASS is a good place for small upstart idealistic
companies to start out. It gives them some protection from the
proprietary giants of GIS.
Along these lines, Mark P Line <line at zorro.cecer.army.mil> is trying to
get something called "Chirp" going, but he needs volunteers to help. If
Chirp works out it may help make up for the lack of GrassClippings.
