Thanks for an awesome project. I know many of us will be enjoying it
for years to come.
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.
And, both congrats and good luck to Isaac with the new role. :)

Subject: [nodejs] New gatekeeper
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.
Thank you both for this platform that saved me from a dreadful object
oriented software pattern existence. Node.js peeled back the layers and
layers of abstraction that had congealed over the years, and made it
okay for a programmer to once again, lay hands on the operating system.
A whole new crop of programmers is coming up that know their UDP from
their TCP. They are scary smart and out of control productive.
It would be difficult to overstate the importance of Node.js, but all to
easy to invite an accusation of over-hyping Node.js. Let me understate
that I see a bright future for Node.js.
I am grateful to have this platform in which to express myself.
