[openstack-dev] [neutron] PTL Non-Candidacy

I'm writing to let everyone know that I do not plan to run for Neutron PTL
for a fourth cycle. Being a PTL is a rewarding but difficult job, as Morgan
recently put it in his non-candidacy email [1]. But it goes further than
that for me. As Flavio put it in his post about "Being a PTL" [2], it's a
full time job. In the case of Neutron, it's more than a full time job, it's
literally an always on job.

I've tried really hard over my three cycles as PTL to build a stronger web
of trust so the project can grow, and I feel that's been accomplished. We
have a strong bench of future PTLs and leaders ready to go, I'm excited to
watch them lead and help them in anyway I can.

As was said by Zane in a recent email [3], while Heat may have pioneered
the concept of rotating PTL duties with each cycle, I'd like to highly
encourage Neutron and other projects to do the same. Having a deep bench of
leaders supporting each other is important for the future of all projects.

See you all in Tokyo!
