| Well, folks, I think it's time for me to step down as Wget's maintainer.
| It's been a fun run since I took up the mantle only two and a half years
| ago, and a terrific experience for me. However, lately it's become
| increasingly difficult to find the time necessary to dedicate to the
| project, and it has gone through a couple of months-long stand-still
| periods when I simply didn't have the available time and/or energy.

| I'm excited about many of the improvements that were made to Wget during
| this time. Many of the ones I'm most thrilled about were not written by
| me, and yet I got to share in the joy all the same by seeing them included.

| If I do find myself with free time to work on projects, I may well
| decide to spend it on a project that matches some of the ideas that had
| been tossed around for a "Wget 2.0" thing, which I had always felt would
| in reality be a wholly separate project anyway. I'm particularly
| interested in experimenting with a "wget" that had been split apart into
| several discreet programs with distinct responsibilities, with a greater
| focus on taking advantage of some of the things that make Unix-like
| systems great (sorry, Windows folks! ;) )

| I intend to continue to be involved with the Wget community, and
| possibly even with development; I will certainly do my best to ensure a
| smooth transition to the next maintainer, whoever that may be. But I
| feel that my time as a maintainer should come to an end now.

| Cheers!
