Subject Change of PMC chair for Apache XML Graphics
Date Mon, 04 May 2009 12:27:53 GMT
Dear directors, dear committers of the XML Graphics project,

I've recently decided to resign as PMC chair of the Apache XML Graphics
project. I've been on the post since the project was spun off the Apache
XML project in 2004. Since then, the project has seen a steady activity
and various releases. However, every now and then I found myself in the
middle of conflicts with some committers which I was never really good
at resolving, especially being the PMC chair. I even found myself at a
conflict of interest during these conflicts because I was on this post.
I believe it's time to change the PMC chair for the XML Graphics project.
Another person can do this differently.

Simon Pepping, a FOP committer since April 2004 and PMC member since the
formation of the XML Graphics project, volunteered to take over the post.
He was actually one of my favourite candidates, so I'm happy and
thankful that he has volunteered. He brings the right coolness and
experience to the post. The XML Graphics PMC has voted Simon Pepping to
become my successor (8 +1 votes, 2 did not vote). I ask the board of
directors to accept my resignation and discuss and approve the
resolution below on the next board meeting.

I'm taking a timeout from the XML Graphics project to cool down and
renew my motivation to work on these great pieces of software. I intend
to come back at some point. In the meantime I'll be working on other
projects (both open source and personal). I'll also see to it that
Simon has everything he needs for a smooth transition.
