Thanks Sean for your service on the TC.

Your experience and knowledge of open source development dynamics will
be missed ! I really appreciated your insights and grounded perspective
in difficult governance discussions that we had to navigate together. I
hope you'll still be able to weigh in on some of those, even if you
won't participate in formal votes anymore.
