Hi there,

I know timofonic couldn't know this, but, just to get that straight  
for the record: Such a paragraph would be inappropriate because it  
sounds as if Robert just put some finishing touches on an otherwise  
complete project. Far from it, Robert had to do tons of major work to  
rework and complete the unfinished work that we got as part of GSoC.  
And during GSoC, he invested lots of time to hold hands and guide the  
development. Not to forget he wrote the original code. What he did  
exceeds "tidying up a little" by heaps and heaps, and I am very  
grateful that Robert invested his scarce and valuable time to see this  
through to the end, despite him *not* being paid generously by Google  
to work on this full-time. (Hopefully, they still pay him generously  
for other things, though ;).
