Whenever I thought that things could go right once for a change, this
"news" came. Well done my lovely community (I will wear this blame
badge from now on too)!

I wholeheartedly agree.
no words would be sufficient to express my gratitude to you for all what
you have done for the Debian project. No other day would be alike now
in Debian when you are gone.
I really hope, that if not through the full parentship of this baby of
yours, you will still keep an eye on your kid(s), express your opinion
and share technical expertise one way or another from time to time.
Let's may be call this not a "retirement" but rather "sending kids to
college" transition -- 18 years is about the right age they say?
Please don't give up on us entirely! Please???!!!
