Congratulations, Fernando! I think you've downplayed your own role: the
existence of a strong team owes quite a bit to your vision and leadership.
With hindsight, I'm glad that IPython was one of my first experiences of
contributing to an open source project. It's still one of the most
welcoming projects I've interacted with, and it's taught me a lot about
good development.

Good luck with the sprints - I look forward to seeing what gets done.
