No Candidacy To The Next Board

Hello,

I have thought a lot during the last time, if I should run again for the
next board and came from a mixture of reasons to the conclusion that I
will not run again.

I have been (deputy) member of the board for about six years now and
from my personal view it's time to take a break or a change. I have been
involved in other volunteer projects for a while now and got the offer
to work further within them. I'll take this offer.

I also got a change in my paid work that leads me to some interesting
new topics, but needs some extra energy to get on speed.

That are only two of my reasons.

Kind regards,
Andreas

        Thanks for your long and dedicated service ! I really hope you can find
time to continue to maintain the extensions pieces & your other
technical contributions to the project.

        All the best,

                Michael.

I can't promise that for the next seven or fifteen years. I'm really
sure that I wouldn't take a workload again, where I used my whole
(awake) spare time to work on the project and take no real vacation,
break etc. and get in return not too much positive feedback, but some
complaint.

I worked on the LibreOffice extensions and templates site and installed
a security patch today.

Cheers,
Andreas

let me second that. Thank you for all your hard work behind the scenes,
on both administrative as well as technical parts, and on many community
events. You've been involved in a lot of projects and been around since
the beginning of TDF and I can't imagine this community without you.

Especially much of the administrative work was tedious and invisible to
the general public - I really hope we will continue to see you in the
community, both online and in person!

Florian

        I feel your pain ! others have mentioned this on the board too: that
our culture of gratitude & taking the time to say 'thanks' has been
eroded & this has a real impact on the relationships that bind us, the
fun-factor & so on.

        I don't think we can easily mandate gratitude =) but would love to see
more leadership on this; so ... a more fulsome thanks again: not just
for the board work but the hard & thankless maintenance of the
extensions repo & all the other good things you've done and continue to
do for the project ! =) it is appreciated, even if I've been too busy to
say so.

        All the best,

                Michael.

Absolutely seconded. You've essentially been running the extension &
template repo alone for all those years!

All the best,
