I'm proud of everything we've accomplished to date and I know that there is a healthy future for the API Working Group. The API WG has made great strides in its mission . Plus it sounds like the PTG sessions were very well attended and that's really heartening to hear after all of this time.
I wish the API WG all the best and it's been a pleasure working on this with everyone.

Ummmmmm...given this statement, I feel I _must_ provide some clarity.
The API WG was started by myself, Jay Pipes, and Chris Yeoh. The ball got rolling in this email thread . One of our first artifacts was this wiki page . The 3 of us were the original core members (I'm not sure if  is capable of displaying history). Then we started making commits to the repo . I'll leave it as an exercise to the reader to determine who got involved, when they got involved, and in what capacity.
Ed has made a lot of contributions as of late and his efforts are genuinely appreciated. So much so that he became a core member and continues to drive the mission forward.
