Season of Docs Technical Writer
- You have always been friendly, warm and supportive, even during the witching hour teleconference calls we asked you to join.
- You have touched so many of us. With each of the fifty-odd quickstarts you updated, you were introduced to a new bunch of people.
- You've stepped up and volunteered to help with whatever needed doing, be it big and challenging, or small and mundane.
- You went well beyond your Season of Docs mandate, both within the OSGeoLive project and additionally in TheGoodDocsProject. (Your initial proposal didn't account for all the community interaction you ended up doing).
- You've brought a fresh perspective to many of our conversations, often introducing innovative ideas. The OSGeo Lexicon Committee started with your suggestion.
- You balanced practical and sensible pragmatism with witty and playful humour. It made working with you fun instead of a chore.
- And you've managed to do all this while mothering, without missing a beat. I was impressed when you introduced your well-behaved toddler as she walked into one of our video conferences.

- There are also comments on some of the Quickstarts that I want to

- I discovered a doc issue in trac that I can probably address as well.
Quickstarts, so that is an exciting opportunity to put some of them to the test.
