I'd like to extend my hearty thanks and congrats to this community, and
Nicolas in particular, as well. There were some months there where
OfflineIMAP's future was uncertain. Now I see more progress and
activity here than I have in, probably, years, and that is wonderful.
Now that there are two actual releases out, I think it's about time that
I start removing myself from the picture some more. Back in my
retirement announcement , I announced that after "obvious consensus
in the community and evidence of long-term stability", I would update
the links on my pages to point to a new location. I think there is
indeed obvious consensus around Nicolas as maintainer, and evidence of
long-term stability is certainly accumulating as well.
So, what form should this take? I could update my links to point to
Nicolas' github pages. Sebastian Spaeth has also offered
offlineimap.org to the community, should it be interested. I have no
particular opinion on which route to go, only that whatever is chosen
should have maximum long-term stability and support from the community,
and, of course, work well with Nicolas' preferred workflow.
