Resignation

Seeing that Project Sunrise was made official I’d like to resign as a Gentoo developer.

Thank you to all the developers and users who have made the last two years a fun period of my life in OSS. You all know who you are. I’ll miss you guys and gals.

I wish the remaining developers good luck with keeping Gentoo Linux among the top GNU/Linux distributions out there.

I can be reached at henrik<at>brixandersen<dot>dk should anybody have any questions to the ebuilds, I used to maintain. Sorry about dumping the ebuilds on the people who kindly took over when I announced my present hiatus – but I’m sure you’ll do a good job at maintaining them.

I have an unfinished draft for a pcmcia-cs to pcmciautils migration howto sitting in my home dir – I’d appreciate if someone would step up and finish it.

So long and thank you for all the fish,
Brix

Hiatus

As some of you already know, I will be taking a hiatus from Gentoo starting this weekend. While I am gone, the mobile herd is pretty much left without active developers. Uberlord and phreak have already adopted some of the more critical ebuilds, but quite a few are still “orphaned” as seen in this report from ‘herdstat -dp brix’:

Developer:       Henrik Brix Andersen (brix)

Hopefully someone will step up and adopt the remaining ebuilds. I will, of course, be available for answering questions about these ebuilds through e-mail and IRC.
