By David Merrill

New Editor

   I have decided to step down as the Collection Editor. I've given it a
   lot of thought over the past few months and feel this is the right
   decision for me and for the LDP.

   The role of Collection Editor is an important one, but not one I am
   very good at, and we also have other needs that require my programming
   skills. Therefore, I have asked Joy Goodreau to take over the Editor
   job for me. For awhile now Joy has been helping with the editing and
   reviewing efforts, and has been doing very well. Please welcome Joy to
   her new role and give her the same support you have given me.

   I will not be leaving the project, just working on different things,
   so don't think you're now free of me. :-)
