Thanks for reaching out to OSGeo Alex. We appreciate you request about
making Blink Raster a part of our OSGeo Community Projects.
Let me reach out to our committee with a few questions, and then I'll get
back to you on the next steps. I apologize for my late response. I'm just
getting caught up on e-mail.
