Hi everybody,

My name is Alex Levine and I'm the current PTL of EC2 project. 
Apparently I have to apologize for everybody because being in this role 
for just less than a month I didn't expect I have to go through 
elections for the newborn project so I haven't even looked at this side.
When I'd found out I contacted Tony and Tristan and asked what can be 
done in the case and was told that I can either write here or attend the 
Tuesday's TC meeting. I decided for the second.
But I see that I should make my intentions clear as well.

I am proposing myself for the EC2 PTL and this project is not dormant, 
it's actively developed and supported. However, since 3 of our 
blueprints to nova were dropped this cycle (for the second time) and 
since Amazon doesn't seem to enhance its functionality way too fast, 
recent additions were scarce.

Me and my team are intended to keep supporting the EC2 project in the 
future. We'll attend the summit and have two worksessions.

Best regards,
   Alex Levine
