Subject: Agreement to capture Lubomir's video lecture and PDFs

Hi All,

I have contacted Lubomir Bourdev (CC'ing to Stefan and Christian)
asking if we would be allowed to copy and use some of the original
materials about GIL:

1. The video lecture still available at

2. Original papers about GIL design and techniques

   (and copy in

I'm happy to announce that we have received Lubomir's agreement.

I hope Lubomir will not mind me pasting verbatim copy
of his complete response below, for clarity and archive:

Hi Mateusz,

Thank you for your efforts in updating GIL!
I am ok with all of these changes. Please do host the video and the GIL papers.
I also feel that GIL needs some update to take advantage of the latest
C++ features.
Unfortunately I don't have time to do this.

One thing that I think would be very valuable is to create a number of
code snippets
on "how do I do X". People don't have the patience to read through the
they just need a quick answer.

Thanks again for your help!

Best regards,

Mateusz Loskot,
