Hey Jeff,

This is tough to take.  You are a huge asset to the OSGeo community,
and I'm hopeful that you will continue to fill that role in your own
way.  I've always appreciated your kindness, great humor, and

I haven't had nearly enough time or energy for the OSGeo board lately,
and I don't pretend to know all the details behind your decision.  But
if you were to reconsider your resignation or decide to come back on
board in the future, you'd have my wholehearted support.
