Hello guys,

This mail is to announce some of the role changes in the Evolution project. I 
have been thinking about this for a long time, and I feel that this is the best 
time to implement them.

I am proud to announce Chenthill P (chen) as the new Evolution maintainer. He 
is a long time contributor to the Evolution project and has been working in the 
project for over 5 years.  He is well known in the community for his expertise 
in Calendar component and has been its maintainer for the last 4 years.  He has 
been one of the prime contributors for the Groupwise provider and Microsoft 
Exchange Calendar. A few of his notable contributions include libical 
integration with System timezone for better Daylight savings support, 
single-model-view design of Calendar MVC and removal of libical fork.   He has 
mentored interns and GSOC students on Calendar search improvements, Microsoft 
Exchange Delegation support, Google Calendar integration etc.  

I am also proud to announce that Matthew Barnes (mbarnes) is joining Chenthill 
and support him as the Evolution co-maintainer. He has been contributing 
towards Evolution for over 3 years and is the Mail maintainer for the last 2 
years. He has made significant contributions towards obsoleting several 
libraries, and helping to migrate to newer technologies. He has been working on 
Kill-Bonobo which is a major revamp of Evolution Shell. This involves rewriting 
Evolution components and UI which is a focus area for Evolution 3.0.

Going forward, I will be focusing on improving evolution infrastructure for 
netbooks and other devices; chen and mbarnes would be driving the Evolution 
project direction and releases.

Please join me in congratulating chen and mbarnes, and in wishing them good 
luck in their new roles.
