Hi Dan, I suspect we have different views on the role of competition in certain community decisions, but I'm sure that we both would have approached the vote in a spirt of fair play and with no hard feelings, regardless of the outcome. Nevertheless, I respect your decision and look forward to working with you and the entire Evergreen development community towards what will be the best release of Evergreen yet this fall.
I suggest that folks plan on touching base tomorrow at 1 p.m. EDT in #evergreen anyway to discuss plans for 3.0 and confirm that we're all on more or less the same page regarding release goals.
