Thank you. I (along with many others, I know) appreciate your efforts
over many years of work as Project Secretary. But now it's time to
pass that torch on to somebody else.

:-( While we may have had disagreements about votes very recently, I
sincerely hope that you will decide to continue within the project as
a whole. I think any suggestion of an expulsion is utterly absurd. I
hope that you will carry on with your work in other parts of Debian
where you have made valuable contributions over the years, but of
course that's your decision to make.

Go, take some time off in peace and work out what you want to do in
