Subject Re: Resigning from Apache OpenOffice

This is clearly a bad day for OpenOffice. I don't like to read such 
mails and much less when it comes from you.

I know you since our start as Apache podling and even a bit longer. So, 
I'm very said that you have decided to leave the project and I'm very 
disappointed about the reason - which is obvious for all who have 
followed the list here.

I can only hope that you have written the mail in an angry mood and 
would be willing to think again about your retirement. Or at least to 
come back when we have made some progress towards a new release and show 
the world with it that we still can bring out new stuff.

I thank you so much for your work, time and energy that you have brought 
into the project and wish you all the best for you new way.

I still hope that this is just a bad nightmare.

With 2 big tears in my eyes.
