Please support the upcoming Vienna Code Sprint 2014

In the occasion of the upcoming Vienna Code Sprint 2014 [1], the GRASS GIS Project Steering Committee decided earlier this year to  officially join this code sprint, considering it as a great opportunity  for joint activities. More than 60+ developers from the most important OSGeo project communities will be joining the event.
While the GRASS developers are donating their valuable time, the community of enthusiast users (you!) may contribute with donations,  even symbolic, that will be used to cover out-of-pocket expenses of the  participants. Companies can also decide to sponsor specific tasks!  Please don't hesitate to contact us [2] (or Markus Neteler, neteler@osgeo.org) for further details.
As usual, all of the work done in the community sprint will be directly contributed back to the GRASS project for the benefit of everyone who  uses it. Our scope at the sprint is to publish a first release candidate  of the stable GRASS GIS 6.4.4 version as well as a tech preview release of GRASS GIS 7.

About GRASS GIS
The Geographic Resources Analysis Support System (http://grass.osgeo.org/), commonly referred to as GRASS GIS, is an Open Source Geographic Information System providing powerful raster, vector and geospatial processing capabilities in a single integrated software suite. GRASS GIS includes tools for spatial modeling, visualization of raster and vector data, management and analysis of geospatial data, and the processing of satellite and aerial imagery. It also provides the capability to produce sophisticated presentation graphics and hardcopy maps. GRASS GIS has been translated into about twenty languages and supports a huge array of data formats. It can be used either as a stand-alone application or as backend for other software packages such as QGIS and R geostatistics. It is distributed freely under the terms of the GNU General Public License (GPL). GRASS GIS is a founding member of the Open Source Geospatial Foundation (OSGeo).
