almost two years have passed since I took over as calendar lead from mvl, and I think it’s time for a change. So I am stepping back from this role. There are two main reasons why I think this is necessary:
- I am going to have less time for calendar work in the future, and I fear I can’t meet the requirements of that role in the future
- I think it’s simply refreshening to have a change in lead from time to time, to gather new views on things and do them differently
So who’s my successor?
I am grateful that Philipp Kewisch has volunteered to step in. He’s both smart and a great guy to work with, and has already done a lot for the project. So he feels like the natural choice to me. Please support Philipp in his new role!
Finally, I’d like to thank the whole team for supporting me during this time. It’s been a great time for me and I learned a lot. I am sure we continue to have great releases! Having less time does not mean I am leaving the project ;-) I will certainly do a few features/bugfixes/reviews. Stay tuned!
PS: Philipp is at the top of the “2008 bug fix ranking“!!
