Ian Craggs has been a key member of the Paho team since the project was established, and through the recent 1.0 release Ian was the committer who "made things happen", authoring the release proposal and plan as well as personally maintaining some of the clients and making fixes across the code base.
In short, Ian is an excellent example of someone who has taken a leading role in the project and we would like to propose that he be elected one of the project leads on Paho.
However, Dave and I already "co-lead" the Paho project and have discussed how best to go forward. Given that Dave and Ian work for the same sponsor organisation, Dave has suggested that he steps back to allow Ian to take the lead. For my part, I expect my ability to contribute to be reduced given my recent job change, but I'm happy to stay on to support Ian and help to provide some balance where appropriate.
- any comments or questions?
- Committers, please indicate whether you are happy with this proposal.
Also: a personal THANK YOU to the entire team of committers, leads, and most importantly the community contributors for making the 1.0 release happen. We do recognise that this is a team effort and we appreciate the community "keeping us honest" with your code contributions and testing :-)
