Subject Re: Resigning from Apache OpenOffice
Date Sat, 03 Sep 2016 19:05:49 GMT
Thus makes me very, very sad. I hope that my comments are not
a factor here. As anyone who had been following the hacker-news
and LWN thread know, I am a supporter of AOO; I have been one
since the start despite the slings and arrows directed towards
me in being such.

There was no intent to malign the people doing fantastic work
on AOO, nor their enthusiasm, etc... The thread started was
simply a request for discussion about what a retirement would
look like; I relayed my thoughts as such. No more, no less.

Personally, I'd like you to reconsider.

and continue to do.
