Hi Harold, 

I'm sorry that you've decided to resign both your Board membership and
your JSF membership, but I fully understand that your vision is a bit
different from the JSF's current mission, so of course it is best for
you to focus your efforts accordingly (after all, no one ever said that
the JSF is the end-all and be-all of the Jabber community!). I know I
appreciate your efforts, and look forward to your future contributions.

And maybe we can finally sell all those T-shirts you produced!!!



P.S. Since you've resigned from both the Board and the JSF, I've updated 
the JSF's member database and your mailing list memberships accordingly.
