Change of guard .

This message is addressed at recordMyDesktop's users.

I believe it is time for me to step down completely
from the project and let someone else take it to new
Looking at some commit stats, it became clear that I
haven't made any real contributions to the project since
December, 2007. After that, all I did was mostly push
upstream any translations or patches that I got.
But I haven't had a vision for the application for a very
long time.

It is with great joy, though, that I announce
the new maintainer of recordMyDesktop :
Martin Nordholts !

Martin has approached the project a long time ago
and has recently brought new life to the code with his
deep re-factoring and tireless efforts to revitalise the
code base. His level of success at improving the quality
of the project has been astonishing and I was really happy
to see that accepted my invitation to be the new admin and
maintainer for the project.
Whatever direction he might set for it from now on, it is
thanks to him alone, that this project is far from dead yet.

Anyway, I've learned a lot during the last (almost 3!)
years and more importantly, I've met many interesting people.
The whole experience was really fun.

I wish the project and its new maintainer best of luck !
