I would like to congratulate all the people to participated in time +
efforts +  ideas  for having available this welcoming package. I had the
change to participate in multiple talks, meetings and mapathons and in my
presentations I share some examples of who (Governments, Companies,
organizations, Universities, etc) is using OSM but having this is a formal
website will make things easier and simpler to share. I am very happy to
see it and I will be glad to help coordinate the translations in Spanish
and Portuguese with the support of the OSM LATAM community.

Thanks again!
