Well, folks, I think it's time for me to step down as Wget's maintainer.
It's been a fun run since I took up the mantle only two and a half years
ago, and a terrific experience for me. However, lately it's become
increasingly difficult to find the time necessary to dedicate to the
project, and it has gone through a couple of months-long stand-still
periods when I simply didn't have the available time and/or energy.

I'm excited about many of the improvements that were made to Wget during
this time. Many of the ones I'm most thrilled about were not written by
me, and yet I got to share in the joy all the same by seeing them included.

If I do find myself with free time to work on projects, I may well
decide to spend it on a project that matches some of the ideas that had
been tossed around for a "Wget 2.0" thing, which I had always felt would
in reality be a wholly separate project anyway. I'm particularly
interested in experimenting with a "wget" that had been split apart into
several discreet programs with distinct responsibilities, with a greater
focus on taking advantage of some of the things that make Unix-like
systems great (sorry, Windows folks! ;) )

I intend to continue to be involved with the Wget community, and
possibly even with development; I will certainly do my best to ensure a
smooth transition to the next maintainer, whoever that may be. But I
feel that my time as a maintainer should come to an end now.
