Shout out to @blowekamp!

For those who don’t know, we’ve transitioned to a new institute, and Brad has done an astounding amount of work completely rebuilding our build and test infrastructure. It’s been incredibly trying for him, and he deserves all the plaudits for continuing to advance SimpleITK.
