Hi all,

For the past few months I've been gaining more responsibilities within
Red Hat. I have less time to dedicate to personal contribution and
it's had a considerable tole on my ability to perform my duties
upstream to the degree of effectiveness I am satisfied with. To that
end, I've decided that the right thing to do is to hand over my
testing lieutenant responsibilities to Jakub Libosvar, and to step
down from the core and drivers team.

This is a bitter sweet moment. I'm enormously proud to see the
progress Neutron as a platform, community and as a reference
implementation have made over the last 3 years and I'm thrilled to
have taken part in that. It's grown from an experiment to a ubiquitous
OpenStack project with a proven, robust and scalable
batteries-included implementation used at the largest retail,
insurance, banking, web and telco (And more!) companies in the world.
My focus will remain on OpenStack networking but my contributions will
be indirect through my amazing team members. The people leading
Quantum when I joined are nearly all gone and luckily we've seen a
continuous influx of fresh talent ready to take over leadership
responsibilities. I'm confident the wheel will keep on spinning and
the project will continue stepping down the right path.

I'll still be on IRC and I'll be working over the upcoming couple of
weeks to hand off any specific tasks I had going on. Have fun folks.
