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 [1], 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 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.

Thanks again,

-- John Goerzen
