Dear OSGeo Community Members and OSGeo GSoC Admins,


Sincere thanks to all the Admins for their constant help and support
throughout the past years in organizing the Summer of Code. For me, GSoC
plays a very important part of my career and I feel it would be same for a
lot of us.

Having mentioned that, I personally believe that it would be sad if the
GSoC is not continued. I feel that this also calls for an opportunity to
people like me who can jump into new shoes under the guidance of ex-Admins
to carry forward the continous open-source contribution in the geospatial
domain under the umbrella of the OSGeo.

So, I would be honored to be a part of the GSoC Admin team. It would be a
great learning experience for me and a progressive step moving ahead in my
life. In the past, I have completed GSoC 2017 as a student under the OSGeo
(MapMint project). I also got an amazing opportunity to co-mentor the
projects for MapMint in 2018 and 2019. Unfortunately, I missed out the
opportunity to be a part of the OSGeo representative committee for the GSoC
Mentor Summit in 2019 due to visa issues. Currently, I am mentoring for the
OSGeo Google Code-in.

Before taking this step, I wanted to be sure that I would be able to carry
forward this responsibility and hence, I tried to do a bit of research on
the basis of conversations stored in the Archives. Please be assured that I
am making a well thought decision, and my commitment in this new endeavour
is 100%.

With kind regards,
Rajat Shinde
OSGeo Charter Member(Since 2018)
