Hi Vesna,

The MAT WG chairs are very happy to see that the RIPE NCC is putting
more resources into building a community around its measurements and
tools efforts, but also to ensure that the project goes more into the direction 
of self funding.

All the best for your new job,
and let us know if we can be of service.

On behalf of the MAT WG Chairs.
