I've agreed to stay on one more year on the Squeakland, Inc. board to
help smooth the transition (though if a more appropriate volunteer
steps forward, I'm quite willing to step down at the end of this year.)
In any case, like Bert and Yoshiki, I intend ("as much as possible")
to stay out of the actual development process from now on.
So... etoy developers of the world: your moment has arrived! It's
very gratifying to see that several people have already stepped
forward; may the community grow and flourish!
