This is great day. Year before, it seemed, GRASS will be rejected from the incubation process. But now, thanks especially to Markus Neteler, we are in as part of OSGeo community.

For OSGeo this means, that it has great desktop GIS product, which fits perfectly into OSGeo-projects mozaic.

Another news: wxPython GUI will in next days become the GRASS GUI! Thanks especially to Michael Barton and Martin Landa.

Things are moving!
