continue to serve as PTL!

> Hello fellow zorillas and other interested stackers,
> I'm expressing interest to continue serving as PTL for the OpenStack
> Manila team through the Yoga cycle. I've used my great privilege in this
> role to affect the community in many small and significant ways over the
> past four cycles. It has been a smooth ride because of stellar contributors
> who're beyond motivated and enthusiastic to develop and maintain impactful
> software while having fun. The enthusiasm is bolstered by grit to be a team
> with a difference. We jump at the opportunity to help a user or mentor and
> welcome new contributors or back each other up and help get stuff done,
> regardless of the "barriers" of affiliation. I enjoy being the occasional
> enabler to this camaraderie.
> During the Xena cycle, we mentored two Outreachy interns and on-boarded
> several new contributors. We added sub team core maintainers in the
> manila-tempest-plugin project and a new core maintainer across the manila
> repos. We drove down bug backlogs through bug squash weeks, swarmed to work
> on the OpenStackClient with a hack-a-thon and crushed the goal to drive
> down tech debt. We kept the momentum on several multi-cycle efforts such as
> OpenStackSDK integration, Secure RBAC, Active/Active HA. The Yoga cycle
> will be critical in our efforts to drive some of these multi-cycle efforts
> to closure.
> So, if you will have me, I wish to serve you through the Yoga cycle and
> get things done. I would tell you it's going to be the best release ever;
> but I would hold out the distinction for the Zorilla cycle - yes that's
> what we'll name it, what other cool name will we have anyway :)
> Thank you for your support,
