There have been some concerns on this, already.
(When I requested a karma for "site" module)

However, I found that the "Apache Newsletter" item
at the left-side navi of www.apache.org has moved
from "Foundation" to "Get Involved" (Also, renamed
from "Apache Newsletter" to "Newsletter". Anyone can
find out who did this, via the logs of site-cvs@) section,
very recently.

Theoretically, "announce@" should be used by the Apache
Software Foundation (by the members of ASF). Apache
Newsletter Issue #1 and #2 were the "exceptions" of it.

So, I felt hesitation in describing
"Issuer: The Apache Software Foundation"
at that newsletter, to tell the truth. 
(because I am not a member, stakeholder of the ASF)
... A sort of uneasiness ...


Anyway, I still have such an uneasiness, anxietiy. In such a
situation, I thought that it was high time for me to declare
the resignation and to pass a baton to someone.

In our country, "Resignation of one's post" can be
counted as a virtue of modesty (This is what the western 
people find it hard to understand our country, as a matter of fact)
Yes, I knew that I was against the proverb of
"A bird does not foul the nest that it is about to leave."
, though :-)
