IMHO we need to have someone besides the current candidate(s) to
organize the election of the chair.
I hoped for some faster pace here :-)

It was on the recent community sprint agenda, with no real outcome.
We do need a git *expert* for this. Anyone?
However, I believe that this topic is more a technical rather than a
political one which belongs to grass-dev.

At time there is some experimental setup:

GRASS GIS is obviously already registered there but a git *expert* is
needed. In addition we have to understand how to use git and svn
together (like GDAL appears to do) and when the experimental stage
will be turned into production mode.

IMHO also the Python 3 is a grass-dev topic.

For sure the new PSC will do related house keeping but the technical
part should remain in the grass-dev discussion space unless there is a
strong motivation to make it a PSC task.

Urgent is the election of the chair.
