I'd like to say thanks for all your work on openSUSE! You've done a
lot for the whole project, and for KDE... and it has been appreciated
(even if we don't say it).

Best of luck with the job change and the upgrade to Father 2.0 :-)

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.
