I am actually planning to meet with Sir Betan and Sir Pareja, and with Dr.
Maramba also, maybe this week. The project is actually not ours alone - it
is a collaborative project with orgs from different universities. It is just
that we, the UP Antikythera, realized that this is a great opportunity for
FOSS penetration.
Thanks for the support and encouragement.
