Arthur - I have
started work on a new project at IBM and have to reduce my level of participation
in WTP. I'd like to remain on the PMC in an advisory role and, with the
approval of the PMC, transfer leadership of WST to David Williams.
I'll remain actively engaged with the WTP 1.5.1 maintenance release and
would like David to assume my responsibilities for WTP 2.0 planning and
execution. David and I will jointly represent IBM requirements on the PMC.
