Failing in just about every possible way since 05. No financial

Fail safes, so get over it. Your making it a much bigger deal than it
is.

That should likely be looked at but is the council's place.

Possibly, priorities.

Another option, but not doing anything and letting projects/teams suffer
is not a solution either.

Both Java and amd64 suffered from my time loss to the
trustees/foundation. Both will gain now from my resignation. Even then,
if I dropped amd64, that's more focus for Java. But really I did amd64
as a compliment to Java. Since there were delays with keywording and
stabilization.
