Stepping down from the GNOME Foundation board
When I decided to run for the foundation board in 2006, many of the old timers where not running again and there was the feeling that new people are needed on the board. The board work has been very educational and rewarding for me, but given other engagements and all the new, capable, people on the board this year, I think it's time for me to step down so I can focus on hacking.
The board has decided to appoint Paul Cutler
to take the seat. Paul has been doing wonders on the marketing team, GNOME Journal, and the sysadmin team. I'm sure this opportunity gives him more ways to contribute to GNOME even more.
