Woo hoo! This is brill news - excellent work everybody and of course a 
special shout out to all the editors, Phil and co-chairs. But really 
this was such an awesome team effort from all the WG members.

I can see the DWBP Rec being a very referenced doc over the coming 
years, and only growing in importance as the data revolution expands!

I look forward to collaborating with you all again, meeting you at 
events and conferences, and if you're ever in Ireland, drop me a note!

It's been a wonderful pleasure working with you all.

Deirdre
