Hi Daniel and All,

Glad to know that the pgRouting project is
setting up a PSC. Sorry for the delay in
my reply.

Thanks for inviting me to the PSC. I will
try to do by best to be of help.

Hope pgRouting will growover the years and
be an "official" OSGeo Project sometime in
the near future.

Best regards
