Well, limited is still an overstatement. These days I literally have
*no* time left (or maybe just enough to keep up with this mailinglist
and handle e-mail). I've been thinking about this, and it doesn't seem
like the situation will change a lot (mind you that next semester I'll
even have 6 courses compared to 4 this semester).
Furthermore, my interest in the BLFS profile (and using xml for
automated builds in general) has become very small. I'm more of a
webdesigner now, and I want to dedicate more time to that. Therefore, I
have decided to give up my job as BLFS profile maintainer.
I've really appreciated the time I've been around here, and I've learned
a lot from (n)(A)LFS. I still find it amazing how a group of strangers
can build up something like (A)LFS. It was a pleasure working together
with the team.
PS: I'm not really leaving the project entirely. I'll keep assisting
(read: bugging ;-)) people on this mailinglist whenever I have the time.
