Thanks Filip for your continuing support of the Geronimo project, and  
of course for the important contributions you make to the Tomcat  
project.   It must be frustrating to take a step back when so much  
progress has been made.  But you did the right thing for the  
community and I'm confident things will get back on track quickly.

Best wishes,
