[CentOS-virt] Resigning as lead of the Virt SIG

Hi all,

I wanted to let you know that I feel I need to step down as leader of the Virtualisation SIG. When I originally was approached by KB to do this, it was always clear that this would be a temporary thing until the SIG got going. At the time, only Xen and CentOS folks were involved with the SIG. Since then, we added oVirt and Docker maintainers, have a total of 5 maintainers and built good momentum.

There are two reasons why I feel I should step down as leader of the Virt SIG: a) I have been traveling too much and thus did not have the bandwidth to do this job justice in recent months. b) In addition, it would also make more sense for one of the Virt SIG maintainers who is more closely involved with day-to-day activities to pick up this job. I will still be able to help with PR and other items.  

When I was absent over the last few months, George Dunlap (gwd on irc) did most of the groundwork and led SIG meetings on my behalf, so I wanted to propose that George leads the SIG going forward. That is assuming that none of the other SIG maintainers want to step up. George agreed in principle.

In the last Virt SIG meeting, not all maintainers were present, so we couldn't make a formal decision. KB said the following:

kbsingh: I think if gwd is ok with it, and people are ok in the SIG, its good for me

This means that succession either has to be settled in the next SIG meeting, or by e-mail responding to this thread. I don't think there is any formal process, but I would suggest that the maintainers listed on https://wiki.centos.org/SpecialInterestGroup/Virtualization should have a say either at the next IRC meeting or by replying to this email thread.

Best Regards
Lars
