Hi, team

I'm writing to let team know I will not run for I18n PTL in Newton cycle. 

I18n team have a long history starting from July of 2013. I was there at 
the beginning. Almost 3 years passed, I see the team growth rapidly. 
Especially in the recently year, a lot of things happened.

In Vancouver, we had the first I18n team meeting and we decided to go 
official. We made it in Liberty cycle. In Tokyo, tens of translators got 
their ATC codes because of translation contributions. We successfully 
moved to Zanata. We set up our own I18n repository. Translation 
contributions can be shown in stackalytics. Translation check website will 
be ready soon. Full time translators work together with us in Mitaka 
translation. There were 1 million words translations in Zanata after 
Liberty translation. I'm sure the number will grow a big amount in Mitaka. 
I'm so proud of the team and progresses we made.

I appreciated the great support from coordinators. I appreciated the help 
of Elizabeth, Steve, Carlos and Alex, who helped to set up our own 
dedicated translation website. I appreciated Andreas's work on infra side. 
I appreciated Tom and Stefano who helped to set up the team. I'm so glad 
that I made a lot of friends there.

I'm happy to see Kato announced his candidacy for the new PTL. I think he 
is well qualified. I will not leave. I will support the new PTL to make a 
smooth transition. I will continue as the coordinator of Simplified 
Chinese team and contributor of I18n team. I'm looking forward to see more 
achievements we make in the future.

Thank you and best regards.
