Subject: [Angstrom-distro-users] FYI: Resigning from anything with Angstrom in the name
To: angstrom-distro-devel@linuxtogo.org, angstrom-distro-users@linuxtogo.org

Not that it would matter since I didn't do anything on Angstrom in the
last couple of years, but just FYI I'm officially resigning from
anything that has Angstrom in the name, including the mailing list
administration. New mailing list owner is Mr. Kooi.

Cheers and good luck,

Hi Speculatrix, thanks for your kind words.

The background on this issue is twofold:

First, I had to realize that I did not have enough time to further contribute directly to Angstrom. Instead, I'm focusing more on getting the metadata in OE right for all kinds of distros -- e.g. the "minimal" one.

Second, I have some personal quarrels with the project leader which are no longer bearable, so I figured I might as well resign to keep my blood pressure under control.

I'm still pretty much around in the community. I work on OE, I work on freesmartphone.org middleware (kindly funded by Openmoko Inc.), and doing my share to bring Linux on all kinds of mobile devices forward.

Since moving more towards smartphones, my Zaurus models only gather dust, but you know, there's only so much hours per day. Still I think that what we do in the freesmartphone.org project, SHR-project, and last but not least OE, benefits also the Zaurus family.
