It's been a pleasure working with you (since 2008!).  Thanks for all 
your hard work over the years!

I will volunteer to adopt the X.org packages (note by this I really mean 
stuff that comes from X.org, it doesn't include toolkits like Qt or 
GTK+, or desktop environments like MATE or XFCE)

I'll also volunteer to take over maintainership of cygport, if you don't 
have other plans for that.
