On a somewhat related note, Chip has been very much absorbed by work and
life of late, and talking to him on the phone today we both felt it
would be best to let everyone know he's officially on sabbatical for a
while. He plans to return as soon as possible. We've spread much of the
pumpking's responsibilities across the release managers, and any
development questions will be redirected to the architect. I'm impressed
at how the Parrot team has handled losing the contributions of a core
member, rerouted around the loss, and kept growing. My thanks to all of you.
