Last week CrateDB v1.0.1 was released as Generally Available. This is the culmination of years of work, thousands of commits and in excess of 1 million downloads.

If your name appears on this diagram somewhere, congratulations and thank you for your contrubutions to Crate v1.0.1.
With the first Crate GA release now made, it will be interesting to see how this diagram changes over time. At the very least, I would hope to see an increase in contributor acquisition.
