I too would like to thank the organizers and sponsors! Organizers put
in a lot of work to bring together OSS developers and show off their
localities at the same time (point of pride!). The Paris event was
another great one, and I for one am about 5 lbs heavier as well as
several dozens commits further forward. Sponsors "pay it forward" to
make sure projects have a annual kick getting key people together to
coordinate the project and solve hard problems (I probably wouldn't
have tackled the nasty 2.2 upgrade bug if I hadn't had the contiguous
time and Dan Baston at my elbow to help w/ debugging.)
Thanks again!

I very much enjoy participating at these events, and I'm grateful for the locals who take on the challenging task of organizing it. Cheers to Olivier and Oslandia!

Having an event focused on developer coordination (sprint), rather than specifically outreach (conference), will continue to ripple forward into the projects and software. My thanks to the sponsors who ease the participant burden. It really does make a difference.
