Thank you Felicity for everything you have given our OSGeoLive community 
during Google's Season of Docs. It has been much more than your writing 

* You have always been friendly, warm and supportive, even during the 
witching hour teleconference calls we asked you to join.
* You have touched so many of us. With each of the fifty-odd quickstarts 
you updated, you were introduced to a new bunch of people.
* You've stepped up and volunteered to help with whatever needed doing, 
be it big and challenging, or small and mundane.
* You went well beyond your Season of Docs mandate, both within the 
OSGeoLive project and additionally in TheGoodDocsProject. (Your initial 
proposal didn't account for all the community interaction you ended up 
* You've brought a fresh perspective to many of our conversations, often 
introducing innovative ideas. The OSGeo Lexicon Committee started with 
your suggestion.
* You balanced practical and sensible pragmatism with witty and playful 
humour. It made working with you fun rather instead of a chore.
* And you've managed to do all this while mothering, without missing a 
beat. I was impressed when you introduced your well-behaved toddler as 
she walked into one of our video conferences.

So on behalf of the OSGeoLive community, thank you.
