That's awesome! I'm really excited!

I wouldn't worry about it until it becomes an actual "problem"; too
many patches is a good problem to have :-)

I don't think I have anything to add that Daniel didn't already add in
his reply. Also, I have seen Marcelo around for a while. I have to
say, I don't think I have seen a student group this involved upstream.
I am impressed :-)

Thank *you*!

I wish I could offer more material assistance, but with only a week's
notice, I don't think I can. I will try to be online periodically
throughout the day, but I am afraid I cannot promise anything.

No matter what, we would be somewhat limited with what we can do in
2021 because of COVID. No promises, but if this goes well maybe next
year we might be able to send someone in person if that's something
you would be interested in.

Best of luck! I hope it goes well!
