Thank you, Devananda, for letting us know your intentions.

Thanks for all your hard work and service. I always appreciate hearing
your point of view.

You make good points in your post. The ease with which OpenStack grows
new projects does make us more complex, not less. The user is the one
who suffers in this situation. Devs always have the option to just
narrow their focus and fix what is in front of them, that approach
doesn't work for the user.

Thank you as well for your honesty both with yourself and with us
about your time commitments

Thank you,
