Well, if that helps a very deserving project to be graduated, I'll be  
more than happy to keep on serving in its PMC. I asked to be turned  
into emeritus because all I did during these years was providing  
advocacy and oversight (given Roy was there, this basically turned  
out to a few +1, but hey), with no code contribution whatsoever. But  
I'm still here and willing to help.
