Thanks for the continuing effort, Jesse, Van, and everyone!  This is
why Python is great and not just good.  I can't say thank you enough
to all the people that work so hard on tracker issues, documentation,
conferences, outreach, infrastructure, and all the pieces that make
Python more than just a good idea.  Not to discount the effort leading
up to the ideas, but the Python community realizes them through the
hard work of so many individuals willing to "sacrifice" for something
they love.

I've been following this list for a year and have not seen much
recognition, so it likely goes without saying (or I've just broken an
unwritten rule :), but sometimes it needs to be said out loud
regardless and sometimes loudly.  So thanks everyone!
