how about "taking a break"? ;)

sigh, I'm saddened to read this, though of course I support your
decision and wish you lots of fun & good stuff elsewhere!

I'm just extremely sad how this DC20 decision has increased the divide
in some parts of DebConf (and Debian, but to a lesser degree) and how
years of work are being harmed by this. That said, I neither fear for
the videoteam nor DebConf itself, I just see harm which could have been
avoided and motivation which might not come back.

And anyway: many many thanks for all your work on DebConf!
