Dear Denis et al.,

Really looking forward to having you guys participate in Apache OCW
and looking forward to the obs4MIPs Python program in there. I need
to integrate it into my downstream CMAC task and I can see us also
integrating it into the OCW UI/analytics end.

Awesome work and if you need any help around here, feel free to ask
and please use the mailing list for communications.
