Oh, yes. Friends, family, everyone has been emailing this to us :slight_smile: Note that it is licensed only for non-commercial use, so in the spirit of Tidelift and paying the people who do the work, I’ve already emailed to ask to pay for a license to use it in our slide decks :slight_smile:

And if anyone knows a maintainer in Nebraska, obviously we need to talk and get them signed up :wink:
