Today I resigned from the Debian project. The following packages are up for adoption:
I'll remove myself from Planet Debian tomorrow, assuming the keyring revokation isn't swift and merciless.

Tags: debian, meh.
Since a couple of people asked "Goodbye world" is meant in a "Goodbye planet/world" way - not in a suicidal way.
A combination of little things, and a desire to spend my time elsewhere has lead to this decision.
There is no single specific event, failure, vendetta, feud, or action that has led to this (apparently abrupt) decision.
If you don't mind the question: why?
In any case, sorry to see you go.
Sad news indeed. Will you stay on at debian-administration.org?
Well that sucks, always enjoyed your blog posts.
As for the "why?" a number of minor irritations, coupled with a desire to do new/interesting things. There is nothing more specific that I wish to share :)
The http://debian-administration.org website will continue to exist, and I might even have more time & patience to update it in the future.

Sorry you're quitting the Debian project stuff you're a part of. Your sites and software, and Debian encouragement, have been very helpful to me. Good luck with whatever your plans are.
I would like to thank you for your support and to say that Debian is loosing one good man. Good luck with your life outside Debian, and maybe you will be back some day.
Good luck Steve!
Thanks for your fine work.
Thank you very much for all your hard work in Debian, personally I'm sad with this news because you're a sysadmin who I admire deeply.
You only leave Debian or other Debian related things too? (like your job in Bytemark).
I wish you all the best in your new things ;-)
P.S. Is a great loss to the Debian Project!
Sad to see you go. Hopefully debian project will see you back sometime. Good luck with the future!
Damn! I always have found your blog really interesting and diverse and enjoyed it. Especially when you had movie-theme titles. And your involvement with Debian. One more person I'll never get to see at a future debconf (assuming I can raise the funds). It sounds like your feedback on what brought you to this state is worthy of fixing (If I can dare to mind-read) -- maybe something private for only leader@. A sad day.
best of luck for your endeavors!
Sorry to hear you're leaving. Just wanted to wish you good luck on your new projects and say thanks for all your contributions!
No don't! Never mind - you don't know who I am so I'm hardly going to change your mind. Sorry to hear this anyway. I hope you come back again some day.
I hope you will continue to offer and improve Chronicle.
Very sad you leave Debian. I have enjoyed your work on this project as well as your blog, tools and of course the fact that you are a sysadmin.
Hope you will have fun in your after-Debian life...
Do you think it is a definitive decision, or will you maybe come back ?
Chronicle will still be developed, and looks like it has a new maintainer.
.. and thanks to everybody who was supportive, or appreciative of any of the small things I might have done.
As discussed elsewhere: I take over the maintenance of Chronicle in Debian (just FYI).
(I'm late to the party)
Steve, thank you for your contributions to Debian and elsewhere (like Chronicle and debian-administration.org). Good luck with your future endeavors!
