Subject: I'm resigning
Date: Mon, 25 May 2009 22:09:30 -0700
After thinking about it for a couple of weeks, I've decided to resign 
from the council. I think the management and unification provided by the 
council is critical, but I just don't have the time to commit on a 
regular basis that's necessary to do a good job. I'm trying to finish my 
Ph.D. and applying for postdoctoral fellowships, and along with my new 
daughter, that means I can't promise any regular commitment of time.

Instead, I expect to spend what Gentoo time I have thinking and talking 
about our future direction and working to innovate rather than managing 
that innovation. I have the utmost confidence that others can fill my 
place on the council. Therefore, it's more important for me to focus on 
innovation, which I feel is driven by individual developers, including 
me. I'm very excited to restart working on projects that I've mostly 
dropped because of my council commitment, such as helping with the git 
conversion, spending more time on PR, and finishing the test-suite 
framework for eclasses, among other things.

I'm still available for advice about anything council-related, so feel 
free to ask at any point.
