Adding professor Gisele email to Open Spending mailing list. We all
definitely should discuss this in Brasília and during the meet up with
Rufus and Helen Darbishire on the 19th of April, in São Paulo.

> Hi everybody,
> Pedro, the link is still not working.

> I´d like to say that Edson in TCE-SP is facing great challenges
> and doing an excellent job in order to make available financial data from
> more than 600 municipalities from São Paulo state (except the capital).
> Unfortunately they download/API section has some problems and he´ll

> alternative is to use the CSV. It will be great to put all datasets (about 600
> municip. multiplied by 4 years) in OpenSpending during the Brasilia meeting.
> I´d like also to say that we, from University of São Paulo

> It will be very important to have an strategie in order to make
