This is great news -  well done to everyone involved in getting this far!

It's wonderful to see the energy behind this project and bringing together
OpenSpending and Escola de Dados will be a really powerful step in helping
citizens understand public money and improve their local environments.

We'll be voting and supporting OKF-Br however we can :-)

Best regards,
