I would like to join Dick in thanking Brian for the awesome work on
Windows. Even if we are not Windows users, we at CERN BE-CO-HT are
perfectly aware of the importance of having good support for the three big
platforms. I know e.g. in the Open Hardware world there are also lots of
Mac users. This job can be a bit unrewarding at times, so we are really
thankful someone has taken it over with such enthusiasm and competence.
Same goes for Adam's work on builds.

I would also like to take this opportunity to thank all the people who
provided feedback on the Tool Framework and the GAL: Lorenzo, Cirilo,
Brian, Vesa, Miguel Ángel, Kerusey, Alex, Camille, and of course the Three
Musketeers! :) It's a great pleasure to work with you all.
