Thanks for all you've done.  I had the pleasure of spending a weekend with you and Tom coding up some BPSK modules back in 2006, and it was fun then and it still is.  You've made learning and using software radio fun, and I'll always remember that.  All the best!


Congrats, you really are the best man for the job.

As some of you know, I've been involved with GNU Radio for a long
time.  The idea that became GNU Radio started as a conversation over
dinner in San Francisco with John Gilmore, something like 10 years

Interest and use of GNU Radio is currently at the highest level it's
ever been.  I however, have come to a place in my life where I'd like
to devote less of my time to GNU Radio and more to other things.

After discussions with GNU Radio developers over the past several
months, I'm pleased to announce that long time GNU Radio contributor
Tom Rondeau has agreed to take over the GNU Radio "Maintainer" role
from me.  For those of you who don't know Tom, he's the perfect person
for the job.

He's smart, has a vision for the future, and has the "cat herding
instinct" required to succeed in the position.  Tom received his
Ph.D. in 2007 from Virginia Tech's Department of Electrical and
Computer Engineering.

Johnathan Corgan will continue to handle GNU Radio release
management and provide professional services related to GNU

Matt Ettus and the rest of the crew at Ettus Research will continue to
crank out low cost hardware for all of us to enjoy.

I plan to continue contributing to GNU Radio, and will be finishing up
some extensions for message passing, as well as some other things
where I'm probably best positioned to do the work.

Bottom line: business continues as usual, and you'll see more of Tom
and less of me.
