Hello everyone! (ccing in k-dev per leadership handoff policy)

As some of you know I have moved on from VMware to Unusual.vc, this
means I will no longer be working fulltime on Kubernetes. :( I'd like
to thank all of you who have mentored and helped me participate in
this wonderful community. After discussion with the other chair and
tech leads we've spoken with Alison Dowdney and would like to nominate
her as the next co-chair of SIG Contributor Experience. She's
wonderful to work with and brings a fantastic injection of energy to
the team.

According to our charter there is a 72 hour window from today for
people to discuss the nomination, please do so on the contribex list:
https://groups.google.com/g/kubernetes-sig-contribex

It's been a rough year, but the project is in good shape. Over the
past few years we've put effort into unbus-factoring many things. I am
happy to report that when my old work email was shut off that nothing
happened. I know that doesn't seem important but if I've learned
anything from Kubernetes it's that incremental improvements over time
totally works. As for me, I'll be working with the folks at Arrikto
around Kubeflow, so you'll still see me at KubeCon, hanging out with
contribex, annoying Paris, hanging out on slack, and all that good
stuff.

Lastly I'd like to thank my co-chair Bob Killen, who has been a rock
for this project when we needed it the most, he's been an incredible
co-chair for this project and a wonderful friend.

Cheers and keep on sailing!

Jorge -- Thank you for all your efforts over the years to make
ContribEx and Kubernetes what it is. As others have said, it wouldn't
quite be the same without you.

Also, +1 to Alsion! I'm excited to see what 2021 will bring for ContribEx!
