I think this needs to be said...

Thank you,  Matthew, for the incredible work that you have put in to this.
I am never going to be the architects that Matthew and Thomas are, but I am
certainly a grateful user of their creation.  All your work (and in such a
short timeframe really) is greatly appreciated.  I hope you can still keep
your finger in the pie, but also let me thank David for picking up the
torch, and Thomas for his continued efforts and good works.

Hi all,

Sorry for being off-line for the last 2 months. My thesis is now written 
and I am awaiting the viva.

Since the BioJava boot-camp, David Huen has become intimately involved 
in the project, contributing a lot of high-quality code (some of which 
even does useful stuff). I think the time has come for me to take a less 
responsible position in the project. I've spoken with Thomas and David, 
and they are happy to take on more responsibility (OK, so Thomas was 
doing a lot of the day-to-day work already).

I guess this makes me the 3rd member of a two-man BioJava team. We will 
get biojava root access to one or both of Thomas and David within the 
next week, at which time they become the 1st point of contact for things 
like read/write access.

I will, of course, continue to actively develope BioJava code, talk 
about it when asked and answer questions where I can.

All the best,
