Hello Rob,

During the time I've been participating in the ODF TC, I was always very 
pleased with you chairing. As Patrick, I'm also glad that you will stay as an 
TC member. You really have helped to bring ODF far and it's good to see you'll 
continue on the ODF journey but leave space for a new chair.

Many thanks!
