Subject: Re: [office] Stepping down as ODF TC Chair

Hi Rob,

Patrick had already said everything - I am just agreeing.

Thank you for your great engagement in ODF and your remarkable leadership at the TC.
Outstanding that you stay active as TC member.

Mit freundlichen Grüßen / Best regards

I can't begin to express what your participation and contributions
have meant to the current success of ODF. People always say that but
in your case it is true. From helping to manage the TC, promoting ODF,
international meetings, it's really hard to say what the past 6 1/2
years have meant.

This is to acknowledge (reluctantly) your resignation as ODF TC
Co-Chair effective June 30th or when a new TC Co-Chair is elected,
whichever is earlier.

I am very glad that you will be staying as a TC member and I think I
can speak for the entire TC in wishing you well in your new roles at IBM.

Hope that you are having a great day!
