Hi pgRouting list members,

For some time already there hasn't been much activity in source code commits
and new releases. The last release has been quite long time ago.

We (Anton Patrushev and Daniel Kastl) want to boost project activity and
make it easier for others to join and influence pgRouting development.
Looking at successful OSGeo projects we think that it should become easier
to participate for everyone, and decisions should be made more transparent.

To get started Anton and I are in favor of establishing a PSC (Project
Steering Committee) for pgRouting.
A good description of the role of a PSC can be found in the GRASS project
wiki: http://grass.osgeo.org/wiki/RFC1

We believe that having a PSC would be the initial step for pgRouting to
become more "open", to handle project management properly, to improve code
quality, to hopefully extend functionality and of course to attract more
developers and users.

To start an initial Project Steering Committee we're now looking for
Since the number of people who have been involved so far is rather small, we
welcome anyone who has strong interest and/or motivation to participate.

Especially I would like to to invite the following people to participate in
the pgRouting PSC:
 - Frederic Junod (Camptocamp)
 - Ema Miyawaki (Orkney)
 - Stephen Woodbridge (Imaptools)
 - Kai Behncke (FOSSGIS e.V)
 - Venkatesh Raghavan (Osaka City University)

If any other individuals/companies are interested, please raise your voice

Looking forward to hear some feedback,
