Congratulations again on the successful meetup, Bruno. 50-60 participants
for the first meetup is excellent, esp they took the time to travel from
far away, on a rainy day...that's a lot of love :o)

Lookin' forward to working with you on the first Jenkins User Event SP 2013
..maybe (?) :o)

take care,
