[openstack-dev] It's time...

0 votes

Hi all,

Tom here, on a personal note.

It's quite fitting that this November our summit is in Australia :)

I'm hoping to see you there because after being part of 15 releases, and
travelling the equivalent of a couple of round trips to the moon to
witness OpenStack grow around the world, the timing is right for me to
step down as your Community Manager.

We've had an incredible journey together, culminating in the healthy
community we have today. Across more than 160 countries, users and
developers collaborate to make clouds better for the work that matters.
The diversity of use is staggering, and the scale of resources being run
is quite significant. We did that :)

Behind the scenes, I've spent the past couple of months preparing to
transition various tasks to other members of the Foundation staff. If
you see a new name behind an openstack.org email address, please give
them due attention and care - they're all great people. I'll be around
through to year end to shepherd the process, so please ping me if you
are worried about anything.

Always remember, you are what makes OpenStack. OpenStack changes and
thrives based on how you feel and what work you do. It's been a
privilege to share the journey with you.

So, my plan? After a decade of diligent effort in organisations
euphemistically described as "minimally-staffed", I'm looking forward to
taking a decent holiday. Though, if you have a challenge interesting
enough to wrest someone from a tropical beach or a misty mountain top ... ;)

There are a lot of you out there to whom I remain indebted. Stay in
touch to make sure your owed drinks make it to you!

Tom,

You will be missed! It's been a pleasure working with you even on opposing
tracks this last track chair round!

Thanks for everything you've done for the community!

Your tireless assistance will be missed. I'm lucky to have been able
to count you as a colleague all these years, and by all means don't
hesitate to reach out if you ever need anything whatsoever. See you
in Sydney to collect on those Australian beers! ;)

Thanks for everything Tom, it has been my pleasure to know you.

You certainly have earned a well deserved rest. I hope you enjoy it.

All good things to you,
