[opensuse-project] Stepping down from the openSUSE Board

The time has come for me to step down as an openSUSE Board member. I ran for the board on a platform of realistic goals for the Board but over the last years several factors have reduced my time for the openSUSE project considerably. First, I became a father for the second time last September (which while a very happy event, has proved rather more demanding than anticipated) and second, I left the openSUSE Team in April this year for an internal team at SUSE without any involvement in openSUSE. Thirdly, changes in how the openSUSE project is handled by SUSE shifted many new tasks to the Board. So in the last few months the time I have to meet my responsibilities to the Board has approached zero.

As a result I would like to tender my resignation to my fellow Board members so that they can get on with organising the upcoming Board elections with a clear idea of who will be running.

In closing I would like to thank my colleagues on the board, Vincent Richard, Robert and Andy for their work in facilitating the project's smooth running and most importantly in sincerely and determinedly representing the interests of the independent openSUSE project.
