Dear Janis and Chengetai

Great appreciation also from London: superb team effort with a special
commendation also to Constance for her inspirational leadership and
dedication on tangible outcomes. Time for all to relax and look forward to
the next IGF!

Kind regards - and season's greetings to all.
