This means a lot to me.

Ken, you're an angel.

Not me. I haven't shared my key with many. I'm going to roll a new pair for this. Unfortunately, I'm in a call with my ISP trying to suss out why I can't connect. It's a new machine, and I need to be able to download some PGP software before I can take the baton.

Steve has done something wonderful for a wonderful community. Let's speed him on his way toward whatever he wants to do next. As soon as I can resolve the stupid technical issue with my ISP, I want this weight off of his shoulders.
Ken, thanks for coming out to help make the transition smooth.

It's probably the better idea to let small teams manage themselves in the longer term. For various reasons though, I felt compelled to seek a good deal of validation that I should do this before agreeing to serve in the long term.
I seem to be finding it.
Onward and Upward,
P.S. Ken I'll let you know as soon as my Internet connection is working again.
