Subject: Re: Thank you for helping make the world a better place

Dear Kris,
We have tremendous respect for the work you and the DITA community have done. 
And now that the mantle of leadership is yours alone,  please allow me to congratulate you (I think ...) and reiterate our desire to support your efforts in any way possible.

Hi, Laurent.

I look forward to a new phase in the DITA TC. I've worked for the past five years in the following capacities, and look forward to new challenges and opportunities as the sole chair:
  • 2008-2010: Secretary, OASIS DITA TC, and lead editor of the DITA 1.2 specification
  • 2010-present: Co-chair, OASIS DITA TC

Many thanks to Don for his hard work over the years, and best wishes for his new ventures!

The DITA TC has marvelous, committed voting members (15 at current count), who actively participate in our lively and productive weekly conference calls. They are the heart of what we do and the people who make it possible.

Dear Don and Kristen,
Don first: I hear you're stepping down after many years of inspired chairmanship on the DITA TC. Thank you for helping make DITA one of the important standards in the authoring world. In our line of work it's easy to forget that what we do is transformational: we get tired of those eyes glazing over when we try to communicate our enthusiasm about standards and interoperability, and why it matters so much. The truth remains that without the tireless efforts of standards proponents, the world would remain a Tower of Babel and very little would or even could get done.
Kristen: thank you for stepping in and carrying the torch forward.
OASIS Staff deeply appreciates your commitment and what you've already accomplished. Let us know how we can support you in achieving even more.
With all of our gratitude,
