Re: Help me secure some free time for org-mode in 2020

Roland Everaert
Hello Bastien,

Nice to see you are still alive ;)

Sad to read that you plan to stepdown, but, happy to finally have a way
to support your work on a regular basis.

I hope you will continue to be part of this community even as an humble
user ;).

And I hope, everything will be better for you in the coming years.

I am really grateful to you, Nicolas, Carsten and all the maintainers of
this amazing tool, which, with emacs preserve my sanity in this crazy
life that is the IT.

Regards,

Roland.
