Absolutely, Francesco, all the Board members are very passionate about
making sure that contributors know their work is highly valued.  Having
these conversations here is the best way for everyone to participate in
the discussions.  We all know that it's easy to overlook great
contributions simply by accident.  Therefore, the Board will continue to
talk about recognizing contributors here on FAB (and elsewhere as
appropriate), so the community can make sure we don't forget about
anyone. :-)  Thanks for your interest and your work as well.
