The decision is not easy for me, as infrastructure administration is always my baby - and especially the openSUSE infrastructure was part of my life now for many, many years. But time goes by and - as well as people - things change. So I decided to step back in this area for now and give others a chance.
besides all the politics and changes happening in the last weeks, with none of this helping in actually improving the infrastructure, but making peoples life harder, I really have to say, that this is what happens when politics go crazy, people get sad and step out of the way - of course they try to fight for a valid amount of time - but if it is about a project mainly driven in free time - like here - I think we all understand, why you had to decided for yourself to make a decision.
It's no good news for openSUSE project, to have such issues and such things happen, and I actually think that we have to look out now how we could replace what you have done in the past.
If I search for "Responsible: lrupp" in our openSUSE Admin wiki:
I'll get a list of at least 22 machines. So I suggest to sit down together - before the Heroes meeting in March - and discuss on which services are running there, how they are managed at the moment and who can be the new openSUSE Hero taking over this service.
Of course there is even more - especially on the OBS-side of the force - where you still are in charge and you are still running those services together with your team - but especially for the openSUSE Heroes managed machines, I think it would be good to have a proper handover of these services. I'm pretty aware, that there will be questions afterwards and I'm happy that you offer to help us with answering to all the questions we might have to these machines in detail.
I offer myself as planning such a meeting, but as Lars' time is less available then mine, I'm open for suggestions regarding the actual date - after Lars told us some available dates - I would like to ask all the Heroes via a "Doodle" or something if they want to join and organize a proper meeting room in Nuremberg for this handover to happen.
Last but not least - Thanks for you work in the Heroes team.
It is somehow weird writing something like a farewell, while still seeing the guy every day... so that's maybe why I don't understand politics sometimes :).
