[Openstack-operators] It's time...

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,

All the best for the future. I will happily share a beverage or two in Sydney, reflect on the early days and toast the growth of the community that you have been a major contributor to.

Tom,

It's my pleasure to working with you and learning from you.
Thank you for what you have done for the community and open source.
Hopefully we will have chances to work together in future, and of course,
see you in Sydney!

Tom,

Thank you for all you've done herding cats around here. We wouldn't be
where we are today without you. We better find a very large pub in
Sydney. See you there!

All the best on your future sunbathing endeavors :)

Cheers,
Erik

You've done amazing things for OpenStack can't wait to see what amzing
thing you do next.

If I'd known sooner would have agreed to 60hrs of cattle class travel
to see you off...unfortunately as it is I won't be in Sydney. I do
sincerely hope our paths cross again.

All the best,
-Jon

Tom,

Thank you for your hard work in the community, your help made possible to build such a great community. Wow, you did travel all around and a good long break is for sure totally deserved.
Do not disappear, you cannot do that to us. There are so many other adventures that we would love to enjoy having you around.

The best wishes my friend,

Edgar

Hi Tom,

Thank you for everything that you have contributed to the community and for the time/energy you invested in helping the project and our global user communities grow to tremendous heights.

I also want to sincerely thank you for the personal impact you’ve had on my path within the community and general guidance throughout the years.

You will be sorely missed and I echo the others when I say that we hope to see you around.

I won’t be around Sydney so I’m hoping we get a future opportunity to share some Moscow mules and trade stories. I would be disappointed if our paths didn’t cross again!

Continue fighting for the users in your future endeavors.

Take care,
Shamail

Thanks for everything Tom. You've made OpenStack more than something I just
happen to be doing, for me and for many others. Far from you needing to buy
us beers, I'd say the opposite is true!

Tom,

Thank you for everything you've done for us.

I especially would like to express my gratitude on behalf of Japan
OpenStack User Group.
Our group wouldn't be as successful as now without your support and
guidance.

I wish you have a good holiday and hope to see you around soon!

Cheers,

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,

The OpenStack community is a family, and you will always be part of it. You’ve made a huge impact bootstrapping the User Committee, empowering operators and generally growing the user community. The silver lining is that you’ve also helped grow many new leaders in the community to help carry forward this important work.

We hope you stay close to OpenStack, but regardless I think you’ve officially achieved AUC status for life...and it sounds like we’ll have a good crew to cheers you in Sydney! :)

To the community,

Tom will be on board through the end of the year to help transition while we work to fill his shoes on the Foundation staff. In the meantime, the User Committee leaders are good points of contact for community organizing, and you can get in touch with them through the UC mailing list and regular IRC meetings.

We also have quite a few members of the Foundation staff who work closely with the UC and across the community, including Allison Price (working with the UC on the User Survey & Superuser), Anne Bertucio (working with Shamail & product team on the Roadmap efforts), Chris Hoge (focused on testing and working across communities like Kubernetes), Mike Perez (cross project developer coordinator), Kendall Nelson (upstream development coordinator & upstream institute), Ildiko Vancsa (telecom, OPNFV liaison, upstream institute), Jimmy McArthur (supporting the Forum & AUC designation), David Flanders (working with the public cloud working group and “closing the app gap”) and Sonia Ramza (intern helping communicate with Ambassadors & user group leaders). I’ve copied them on this email so that their contact info is handy.

Please know we’re here and always available to serve the community, and feel free to reach out to me directly if you have any questions or concerns.

Cheers,
Lauren

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 :)
