Congratulations Sanghee and team!

As Cameron mentioned, drafting your press releases on the OSGeo wiki is
very useful in the long run.  Be sure to include the text
"[[Category:FOSS4G2015]]" at the bottom of every wiki page you create,
and it will magically appear on this page:

Congrats again!  Let me/us know if you need anything.
