Dear Leti,
On behalf of Botswana Library Consortium and on my own behalf I would like
to pass my condolences to Gibson's family and to the DSpace and Open Access
family in South  Africa and indeed in the far end of the world. Botswana's
 DSpace and Open Access community has benefited a lot from Gibson's
knowledge, skills and experience. May His Soul  Find Eternal Peace in The
Kind regards,
Naniki Maphakwane
