What a great idea, Sumana!
I want to thank many people, but those who come into my mind immediately...
* RobLa, for diligently helping with the Wikidata blockers and nudging
people to work together
* Sam Reed and Ryan Kaldari for teaching the Wikidata team a lot
during their stays in Berlin
* Tim Starling for his heroic work with Daniel K on the infamous
ContentHandler branch, and for his continued support of the Wikidata
work - and the awesome work on Lua. I am excited to see what
Lua+Wikidata will enable...
* Dantman for taking the fire out of the discussion two weeks ago
around the Sites table and bringing it to a constructive continuation
* Siebrand and his team for the work on ULS, their support in using
it, and his moral support
* the rest of the Wikidata team that I am blessed to call my
colleagues, and who are a pleasure to work with. Thank you!
As said, this is an incomplete list, but it already got too long.
