As you may know, I currently am the REVU Coordinator , title which
I took at the start of the Intrepid cycle because there hadn't been an
active Coordinator for several months. However, personal reasons (like
exams, other projects having more priority...) have impeded me lately
to dedicate as much time as I'd like to REVU, and because of this I've
decided that it's time to pass the title on to someone who'll make a
better use of it. This doesn't mean that I'll stop working on REVU;
I'll continue reviewing packages, hacking on it and helping with admin
tasks when necessary, like I've been doing since I've joined the REVU
team nearly a year ago, but I don't want to block other people with
more enthusiasm to be creative improving REVU's workflow.
I have spoken with Nathan Handler  about this and he is willing to
take the position (quoting him, «I should be able to devote a fair
amount of time to it. And I would be honored to serve as REVU
Of course, if someone else would like to apply for the role, he may do
so now (and then we'll do a voting to choose between the candidates,
or whatever the election procedure is right now). If nobody else steps
up (and nobody has anything against this) then I'd like to transfer
the role to him.

Let me start by thanking Siegfried for all of the hard work he has
put into REVU. Thanks to him, we now have weekly REVU Days, and
packages are getting reviewed and uploaded to the repositories much
faster than they used to.

I am sorry to see you passing on the role of REVU Coordinator, but I
completely understand. I am glad to see that you plan to continue to
hack on REVU and help out with the administrative tasks. It is greatly

I am very honored that you chose me to take your place as the REVU
Coordinator. You have done a great job, and have set a high standard
to live up to. I will try my best to live up to these standards, and I
will work hard to make the REVU process easier and more efficient than
it already is.
Thanks again Siegfried for all of the hard work that you have put into REVU.
