thanks for your effort. 

I've took the liberty to forward it to the GRASS community [1].

May it be worth also to forward it to the OSGeo discuss list for the broader

Some time ago, I've added OSGeo4W to the main OSGeo website [2]. If you
think, a sentence or short paragraph should be added about this effort, just
let me know.

Had a quick look at your repo at [3], there is mentioned "Oslandia's OSGEO4W
distribution". As you can see at [2], the branding is "OSGeo4W" ... ;-) ....
just as a minor remark ... :-)
