I'm sad to announce today that I am formally stepping down as a regular
contributor to the Fedora Marketing team due to new time constraints.
That's really bad! If I was a CEO in a private company I would not accept
But sadly I'm not, so I'm forced to resign myself to not see you as
frequently as in the past couple of year.
I still have lots of ideas I was not able to explain you before this
announce (in every contribution areas in which we both are involved), but
I'm glad your presence here made me more "productive" than ever.
I'm approaching the end of my degree and have increased loads from my
curriculum and I'm also working more hours than I have before during the
academic year. I'm aiming to scale down my contributions in Fedora to be
focused and consistent in fewer areas than to be insignificant and
inconsistent in many areas.
I wish you the best for your degree and for any future in your life.
With that in mind, I'm not going to disappear completely and I hope to
contribute when I can, but it will be less frequent and more random. I
also hope to finish out some of the work that we discussed this year at
Flock before stepping out completely. I also still plan to help maintain
the social media presence, albeit less often than I do now.
Of course you won't disappear! Otherwise I could come to look for and bring
you back, willy-nilly (is this correct? I meant to say if you want or not).
Above all you don't have to join any other community, expecially Ubuntu,
because we don't want they take advantage from your contributions!
Over the years, Marketing has been one of the most unique
to contribute to in Fedora and there is no shortage of things to be done
or problems to work through. I've been lucky to meet a lot of you in
person at Flock or in other places in the last two years. Thanks
everyone that has been a part of the journey and experience.
You're wrong here; all the Mktg Team thanks you for your presence over
those couple of years; you were able to give us new ways for getting things
done and for throwing on the table new ideas.
A special thanks is also deserved to Gabriele, who helped get me started
with Marketing and I've always appreciated his insight and time to help
myself and others contribute to Marketing.
Thanks so much for that, I really don't know what I've done for you, but
(at least this time) I consider your thanks my best personal success in
As always… keep the FOSS flag high, and see you all around.
As always dear friend.
We we'll see around, take care of yourself.
