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 finally, special thanks to the infrastructure team at the Apache
Software Foundation for the remarkable job they did for Apache OpenOffice
and continue to do.
