[virgo-dev] Virgo Project Leadership and request to committers

I can no longer devote sufficient time to Virgo to lead it in the way I would like to. Eclipse projects have been known to limp along for a while without an active leader, but it's not a particularly good state of affairs. So I'm looking for someone to take over the leadership role. I will be available for consultation, so if there are any tricky issues, the new leader won't be on their own.

I estimate leading Virgo takes about half a day per week. The duties include the following, but these are just a guideline as a new leader could set their own agenda:

* Participating in the RT PMC (the minimum is to join a bi-weekly 30 minute call)
* Running a bi-weekly community call (although this is usually not needed these days)
* Keeping an eye on the forum and virgo-dev and dispatching any important unanswered questions to suitable experts
* Coaching potential new committers
* Processing occasional contributions
* In discussion with other committers, agreeing the content of each release
* Preparing release documentation

Of course, it will be simplest if a current committer is willing to take on this role, so may I ask current committers to consider this and respond by 20 July 2013. (I will be on vacation next week, so if there are any questions, please raise them this week.)
