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.
