Dave has brought stability to our development team and has really helped to reinvent the project. Without his efforts none of this would have been possible.

There are so many people and organizations that have made OSVDB successful and we appreciate the continued support. Special thanks to all that contributed time and energy into OSVDB 2.0 and we look forward to many exciting things to come!
