I would like to thank Marvin for the outstanding service to the Incubator
community during his tenure. With him at the helm, the Incubator has
become a better project and he always made sure that the trains around
here run exactly on time. Thank you Marvin!

I would also like to express my gratitude towards all of the Incubator
project members for honoring me with the Chair's responsibilities. I will
try to do my best, even though the size of the shoes that Marvin is
leaving behind is way too big.

I remember when Marvin was elected a Chair his main focus was on
streamlining the report procedure. I think we can all agree that he
managed to accomplish this herculean task of cat herding (I'm surprised
Gods of Greece didn't come up with this particular labor). I personally
felt the impact of his policies and automation: the process has become
way more predictable (and thus a tad less chaotic).

I am assuming this role for exactly 6 months. Hopefully it will be long enough
to make a little bit of a difference, but not long enough to
completely burn out.
Building on the legacy of all the previous Chairs, my hope is to contribute in
a small way around improvements in automation and general accountability
for the incubating projects.

I hope for a fun ride, but I need your help. I don't think I can
manage without it.
