Hi Team,

For those of you who has been around since the "Nomad" time, you know how a
terrific journey we have come along together. A pure idea, through
community discussion and development, morphed into a project who is rapidly
growing and gaining industry attentions.

It is my privilege to serve as Cyborg's project's PTL for two cycles and I
hope for all of my inefficiency and sometimes incapability as a tech lead,
I did help the project grew both in development and governance (thank you
for putting up with me btw :) ). We got help from the Nova team, release
team, TC, Scientific SIG and other teams constantly, and we could not be
where we are now without these hand-holdings.

Although we have been suffering considerably high core reviewer fade out
rate, we keep have new strong core reviewers coming in. This is what makes
me proud and happy the most, and also why I'm comfortable with the decision
of non-candidacy in Stein. A great open source project, should do without
any specific leader, and keep grow organically. This is what I have been
hoping for Cyborg to achieve.

Hence I want to nominate Li Liu to be a candidate of PTL for Cyborg project
in Stein cycle. Li Liu has been joining Cyborg development since very early
stage and contributed a lot important work: deployable db design, metadata
standardization, FPGA programming support, etc. As an expert both in FPGA
synthesis as well as software development for OpenStack, I think Li Liu, or
Uncle Li as we nicknamed him, is the best choice we should have for S

I would like to emphasize that this does not mean I have done with Cyborg
project, on the contrary I will be spending more time to build a great
ecosystem for Cyborg project. We have four target areas (AI, NFV, Edge,
HPC) and it will be an even more amazing journey in front of us.

Keep up the good work folks, and let's work even harder.
