I am very sorry to see you leave the project, and would very much like
to thank you for all the great work you have done for epp-rtk -
everything from doing the IDLs and the Java code, upgraded the c++ code,
in addition to helping us out with the GNR-specific mappings for Java.
It would have been almost impossible to get the RTKs released without
Also, thanks for still being available for the next few months and may
you find success in all of your future endeavours.
