You announced your resignation from the project.  You never spoke with me
to indicate that you would need continued access to any of our resources.
Consequently, I removed your various accounts as I would for any other
developer who resigns from the project.

I'm fine with providing a temporary shell account on emu such that you can
continue to manage your email account as you have done in the past.  Long
term, I think it is best to keep the server for devs only, so I'd
eventually like to see you establish alternate arrangements for email
hosting.  Would a 3 month transition timeframe be adequate?  Say by late
July/early August?

If there are other specific things that you need during this transition
period, I'm happy to discuss them with you.
