It is with a heavy heart that I am stepping down as the project lead for Smack.
I am happy to have managed to push out 6 releases in the last 3 years, but even from the start I always had issues finding the time to dedicate to this project. Things have never really improved on that front. Three young children and some unexpected illnesses in my family haven't exactly made for a lot of free time over the last couple of years.
I have been thinking about this for awhile actually, but it has only been this year that some other eager contributors have come along with a lot of ideas and motivation for the project. So that makes for a good time to step aside and let those with time and dedication move the project forward.
I still plan on contributing when and if I can, but it will probably be less code and more helping others in the forums. It takes much shorter blocks of time.
So, I wish the best of luck to Flow, who will be taking over my role as project lead.
