Hi Arnulf (and all others)

I would like to formally ask for one slot OSGeo has reserved by OGC. 
Thought I do not have any fixed plan of concrete steps I would like to 
do or to contribute to, I would like to give it a try and see, what are 
the benefits.

I'm active in development of PyWPS (in incubation) - OGC WPS 
implementation and recently, I came across REST API for geospatial data 
design and this topic is resonating in OGC too - maybe my input could be 

So, if there would be free slot, I would like to pick it up for the next 

Thank you
