[openstack-dev] [tc][swg] The future of the Stewardship Working Group

Hello Stackers,

As many of you know, I recently took a job with Spotify in New York City. I
spoke with many folks about the transition plans when I was at the Boston
Forum, and we all decided that it would make sense for me to get settled
into the new position before deciding what amounts of time I had to tend to
SWG work, and therefore what my future in the community would look like.

My new job has become a lot busier a lot sooner than expected. I think I'll
have a little bit more time in my schedule in the next month or so to do
OpenStack related work, but after summer holidays, I expect things to pick
back up again.

Because of all of the unknowns around my availability for working on SWG
things, I think now is a good time to start discussing a potential
replacement for me as the chair of the group. I have loved working with
OpenStack and I plan on sticking around in the IRC channel and monitoring
mailing list work, but I don't think it's fair to the SWG, TC or the entire
community for me to stay on as chair when I can't devote as much time as
I'd like to spearheading efforts in the community.

So - that means I'd love to hear from folks about who might be a good
replacement. I have spoken to a few people behind the scenes to gauge
interest, but I'd like to open it up the community as a whole at this point
to start a discussion.

For those of you who don't know what the Stewardship Working Group is:
https://wiki.openstack.org/wiki/Stewardship_Working_Group is a good place
to start

Some of the workstreams going on:
a) Follow up on project ideas from leadership training

b) Any more poking/helping along of the TC with their current vision

c) An actual vision for the SWG and their next batch of work (this would be
based on feedback from the training sessions above, and from the community,
collected at the Atlanta PTG - https://etherpad.openstack.org/p/AtlantaPTG-

d) The future of leadership training (more to schedule? break it up into
smaller groups? who knows?)

I'd be happy to onboard anyone who's interested in terms of getting them up
to speed on these items.

If anyone wants to discuss any of this with me directly I'm gothicmindfood
on IRC.

Thanks so much for being such an amazing community to be in - you all
continue to be some of my favorite humans and I'm so lucky to have gotten a
chance to work with you.
