For many reasons, I'm choosing to take my leave from Gentoo at this
time. While this was in part brought on by the recent discussions about
the mailing lists, it's related to many other things as well. Mainly, I
don't have the motivation that I used to have to work on Gentoo. I feel
like my efforts are being stymied by the lack of overall technical
progress and direction in the project.

I'm not abandoning open source altogether; I'll still be working on a
few projects here and there. I'll still be around on IRC if I'm needed
for anything.

I regret not having fully completed my GLEP-27 implementation, but my
code is still available for anyone who wants to do the few remaining
bits (mainly, incorporate it with portage, and patch shadow to allow it
to work on an alternate /etc/passwd,shadow,group etc).

I have a few helpful scripts for Vim maintenance that I can give to
whomever wants them (nelchael probably, don't if anyone else is going
help him out).

Also, my apologizes to anyone else that I had said I would help out. If
you still need me, you can track me down on IRC and I can at least give
you some pointers (but probably not much in the way of code).

As for SoC this year, I'll still be available to mentor as much as I
can, on IRC and by email.

Best of luck with Gentoo.
