Status update 7

Hi sprinters, more than two weeks have gone by since the Vienna Code Sprint and I hope everybody has fully recovered from the intense week after a safe trip home. In this final status update I’d like to share some highlights as well as some personal lessons learned.

For the international audience we sent two entries to OSGeo News, again one at the beginning as well as one afterwards. The later one includes a more comprehensive list of highlights and achievements. Both entries (1, 2) have also been sent to the announce mailing list.

Last but not lease I want the say many thanks for all the positive feedback!
