As previously announced, this 100th instance of the OSM weekly means that the contributions to this project by Pascal and Dennis come to an end. Thank you again to everyone for their support over the past four years. We would also like to announce that we found two new volunteers that will continue the OSM weekly. Good luck to Manfred Reiter and Mandalina Ionescu on their future endeavors!
