|New gatekeeper||Ryan Dahl||1/30/12 11:55 AM|
Now that the rewrite on top of libuv is largely complete, I am ceding
my position as gatekeeper to Isaac Schlueter. Our energy will now be
largely focused over the next few months on improving the third party
module system experience including a website for browsing modules, a
new addon build system, and binary installations from npm. Isaac is in
the unique position to bridge the gap between core and external
modules to ensure a pleasant experience. After three years of working
on Node, this frees me up to work on research projects. I am still an
employee at Joyent and will advise from the sidelines but I won't be
involved in the day-to-day bug fixes. Isaac has final say over what
makes it into the releases. Appeals for new features, changes, and bug
fixes should now be directed at him.

Congrats to Ryan on getting some time to go back to new projects and
congrats to Isaacs on being the guy who will decide on the big stuff
from now on.
P.S. Who is the key master...

The "L" in BDFL means LIFE, BRO!
It's good to see the focus moving from core to the module community and there is no better person than Issac to help move it.
|Re: New gatekeeper||Tane Piper||1/30/12 12:58 PM|
Good luck with the research stuff - hope we get to see some of the more interesting and successful results. Thanks again for all your hard work to get us to this point with node, and I'm sure Issac will be as pragmatic in his decisions with node as you were.
|Re: New gatekeeper||James Carr||1/30/12 1:02 PM|
Good luck with the research stuff, and big thanks for the amazing work
you've put into node.js. It's nice to know that Isaac will be taking
the reins. He's been passionately involved since the beginning.:)
|Re: New gatekeeper||H Schroeder||1/30/12 1:03 PM|
Really? This is kind of sad. Anyways, thanks for the fantastic work. Node will always be your baby.

I remember I was about 5 or so beers to the wind at Node Summercamp hanging out by some sort of dance barn (... ??), and you said "I won't be around forever you know" or some such, and some guy next to me almost lost his shit. Amusing memory. Here is a commemorative song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AKO_1xf0Sjw - congrats Isaac!
On another note, just decided we'll be using Node as our web platform of choice after I sent one of my guys to Node Summit. Glorious!

This is such a huge milestone for the community.
Thanks to you Ryan for forging ahead to create this project back in the days when we didn't have upload progress bars :)
Isaac, I've been burning through the NodeUp podcasts, and I definitely think you've got the sensible approach that's needed to steer this project forward.
The module system is the primary way for the wider community to participate in node, and getting that part right will really contribute to the long term success of the project.
|Re: New gatekeeper||Fauzi As||2/1/12 11:32 AM|
Long life BDFL! It was such an excitement to see what you guys gone throughout these years, it was such an amazing experiences me and my teams have.

|Re: New gatekeeper||George Snelling||2/6/12 9:30 PM|
Only time will tell, but I think historians will count you among those who have have moved the discipline a step forward. You join an august group of engineers who have followed s similar path: a brilliant insight, an elegant implementation, a select team. The codebase will have its long run, and will eventually be replaced by something better. But the ideas embodied in node are with us forever. You have made the whole world better with your mind and your two hands. Thank you.

The king is dead; Long live the king!
Thanks to your great leadership, this will not negatively impact the
vibrant nodejs community. It will however positively impact the
personal satisfaction with your daily tasks. So I congratulate you
from the bottom of my heart. Let's have an adequate period of mourning
and then decide where and how to errect proper statuary and memorials.
Oh wait, you have already done so by creating Node. My Bad. ;)
