Jared Smith made an announcement in his blog [1] about some upcoming 
personnel changes in Fedora.  I wanted to make a specific announcement 
to the Fedora lists as well.

Through the end of 2010 and a little bit beyond, I will be working along 
side Robyn Bergeron to transition my official Fedora responsibilities to 
her.  This will include getting the Fedora 15 team schedules into shape, 
feature wrangling, bugzilla maintenance, and any number of other things. 
  Robyn and I are committed to making this transition as smooth, 
complete and timely as we can, and expect the transition to be completed 
before the Fedora 15 feature submission deadline.  Said a different way, 
if you've already been working with me on something, I'll continue to 
help you with it.  For all new topics, please contact Robyn directly and 
we will work together as necessary to get them done.

One of the luxuries of my position was keeping tabs on most of the teams 
in Fedora via their mailing lists.  I won't have as much time for this 
going forward so I'll be scaling back the number of mailing lists I 
watch and contribute to.  If I posted to a list in the past, please 
don't assume I'll automatically see your message there in the future. 
Also please don't hesitate to contact me directly if you feel the need 
to do so.

Fedora, it's been a great ride. We've made great progress in the past 
three years and I'm thankful you let me be a part of it. Here's to 
wishing only the best to Robyn in her new role serving the Fedora community!


p.s. I'm still looking forward to and rooting for an on time Fedora 15 
release. :)
