Re: fresh leader

Hash: SHA1

Thank you, Karsten, for thinking I have what it takes to lead this most
excellent group.  Now I guess we'll see if I actually do!

I know I'll be asking not only Karsten and Paul for assistance but also
every member of this project.  We have some work ahead of us that needs
our attention:

* Release notes[1]
* New CMS to bring up and provide training/documentation for the rest of
* The many guides that are in progress
* The wiki gardening
* Various projects on the task table[2]

Of the above projects I'm asking Ryan Lerch (ryanlerch) and John
McDonough (jjmcd) to head up the Release Notes and Ian Weller
(ianweller) to continue his leadership of the wiki.

Thanks for everyone's hard work.
