Thanks again Gunnar, for your kind words.
And thanks, especially, for making this process a pleasure to go
through; to the point I regret we're not in Curitiba anymore so we could
discuss some fine points about bad licences and how to handle them with
real word example - along with some kind of nice bererage. Preferably
beer, but cachaça would be accepted!
…Ok, I'm sure we would find more interesting stuff to talk about in such
circonstances. But that was unexpectedly fun, and I can only wish every
applicant to have such a nice AM process.
And in this e-mail I'd also like to publicly thank everyone who
encouraged me, before, during, or after my declaration of intention - or
Gunnar's report, proving once again how fine a community Debian can be.
I really appreciated that, and it gives me even more reasons to want to
be part of it! :)
