Subject Re: Thx and merit

Thanks to everyone for the kind words. It has been my pleasure
to contribute to such a community as Apache and I plan on 
continuing doing so as much as possible. 

Many thanks to Jim, Eric, Yann, Rainer, Kaspar and all the
others that have made me welcome here right from the start and 
who helped me settle in. It's a project with an immense history
and there is always something more to learn about it.

When Apache httpd now speaks HTTP/2, then it's mainly 
Tatsuhiro Tsujikawa's work in nghttp2 that made this feasible. 
Many thanks to his excellent work and his nice support!

As Jeff wrote: this all would not have happened if not for the 
sponsoring of the GSMA and Telefonica. Particularly
Dan Druta and Istvan Lajtos have been driving the idea from the
start and Oscar Gonzalez accompanied the project in its execution 
phase. Great work!

My employer, greenbytes, is also partly my company, so I could 
thank myself. However my partners, Julian Reschke and Martin Böttcher,
also deserve thanks for supporting this endeavor.

We are but a very small company and it is not possible to sponsor
a full time person for a long duration. We will continue looking
for sponsors to do work in Apache. Such projects really give 
the greatest worth for all parties involved as can be seen today.

Again, Thanks!
