Thank you for the kind words Mark.  I already feel empowered within the
glibc community.  I've had less of a stake in the GNU project as a whole
(other than the fact that the projects I deeply care about are part of
it) and while I would love to be more involved (for those reasons), the
current structure is not something that aligns with my perception of how
Free software should be governed.
