  • SVN write access to Ondřej Pešek as a new core developer, passed 26 Jan, 2019


  • SVN write access to Stefan Blumentrath as a new core developer, passed Jan 30, 2018




  • GRASS GIS - 30th birthday upcoming! MN is in contact with Jim Westervelt to identify the "precise" date. So we want to celebrate that all over the globe :) And on other planets, too, since we support extraterrestrial coordinate systems.
  • Revisit the license of the Web pages and manual pages. It may be appropriate to change to a Creative Commons license which are widely accepted now.
  • Moritz Lennert suggests: have some reflection on release strategy and notably GRASS 7 release. Maybe we could at least envisage some form of technology preview release that would allow us to where we stand.

2012 and older:



  • GRASS on recommendation to do so. Now available here
  • Add GRASS to Canonical's Rosetta translation project?
    Unresolved issue: a translation is a derivative and non-original work, and Canonical demands BSD-style copyright assignment of translations submitted through them (but not translations coming from the project). Could a translation back to english from one of those be a end-run around our copyright and the GPL?
    Update 2007: It appears that Canonical changed their Terms of use of Rosetta
