Don't worry - this is good news really :-).

A few weeks ago you - the developers - voted me in to the Cocoon
committer-world. Although somewhat sceptical I accepted proudly. Now I would
like to give up being a committer - and as the PMC consists of committers -
that also.

The reason being that Cocoon is becoming too successfull! And to be honest -
in the last couple of months - things have gone through the roof.

Since we started out working with and on Cocoon (nearly 3 years ago now) we
have seen Cocoon grow to become what can now be called a real success. This
has lead to my role at S&N changing into a more managerial position. I am
becoming something of a "Commercial Open Source Manager" (an interesting
tightrope to walk) with lots of exciting work (much of which I can't yet
talk about). Look out for some interesting announcements from the commercial
arena in the next few months though.

Carsten is still "our man in Cocoon" and therefore we will not really be
reducing our role. But I feel that if you are a committer - you should
commit. And this is something I will not be able to do in the near future.
Not in the original sense anyway.

But I will still be here in the community.
