Alan, thanks for everything you have done, I was always surprised by
the amount of work you do, and how you find the time to do it :) it's
often happened to me that I am looking at something, and your name would
pop up! you're a very active member, I didn't really know you were the
PoC (in fact I didn't know there was such a thing!), but your work and
activity has inspired me and pushed me to try harder to contribute
(still getting there, nothing much to contribute and not enough time :)
, I got the impression from your emails that you are not happy with what
you have done so far, you have done a great job and I am happy to hear
that you will keep on doing it!
One thing I know that I will do is vote for the new leader! but there's
only one candidate on the wiki, are the rest of the people that are
active on the list shy? or is everyone busy as well!
Thanks again and good luck!
