Subject: Looking for someone to take over.

I've put this off long enough, and instead of stamping this project as a dead 
beast, I'm querying as to whether there is anyone out there who like to take 
Your duties would be nothing but taking over as list owner(for this mailing 
list), help developers manage projects, set goals, etc.......

If you feel you're capable of the above please e-mail.
And don't just say "Hey, I'll take over"
Explain why you want to take over and what you've done for the linux 
community in the past(be it writing some uber code for the kernel or 
maintaining the applets and capplets for GNOME). 

If someone does e-mail which I feel would be the right person for taking 
over, we'll make it so : )

If no one e-mails me, this list and project will remain as is untill someone 
else decides to step in, let's hope the above is accomplished. 

This is where I'd like to applogize to the people who have taken interest in 
this project and were disapointed by the results so far. 
I found that I didn't have the time, resources, and was not knowledgable 
enough to take on some huge project. 
Or maybe it was just managing skills.

Then again, it's not all my fault, this was/is a community effort.
But as the project leader or whatever obnoxious title I have/had I have 
But you win some and you lose some. 

I'd like to thank Rik Van Riel for giving me the chance to try to pull this 

I'd also like to thank some of the people that tried to help pull a web page 
as well as bug tracking tools, project status, goals tracker, and other 
various web interfaces for dealing with such a huge project. 
Whatever time you put in is and was appreciated.


Thanks and sorry(depending).
