In my humble view, both as an OSGeo charter member and GRASS-GIS' CRO (recently 
experienced the
role for the new PSC election), I can only recommend to allow or even ask, in
some way, all candidates to support their candidacy publicly.

For the next GRASS-GIS' PSC election, I support what came out of a related
thread, in a post by Micha Silver (see

request (which, I know, is rather a bit strict) candidates to feedback the 
community by answering to
the very question (slightly altered)

"What should the community expect from my membership?"

Kindest regards, Nikos
