Pieter, I'm honored, it will now be my life mission. Hopefully I will do
half the amazing work you did with the project and community.
It's a sad day for me, I will really miss you.

Michel, I'm not up to date with the foundation stuff, I will start with
reading the discussion, probably will send you an email tomorrow.

For anyone that want to get to know me, please drop me an email, let's
chat/skype, I will love to get to know everybody involve in the project.
