Sixteen years after Gilles and I founded the Xenomai project, time has
come for me to hand over the leadership to a contributor recognized for
his skills, bringing fresh ideas, and a creative roadmap.

Jan Kiszka has agreed to take over the Xenomai leadership gradually from
me. He will be ramping up his involvement in project steering and
development head gatekeeping during a transition period starting today.
This period will end by September 2018 at the latest.

I will keep on maintaining the I-pipe for the ARM architecture, helping
in reviewing changes to the Xenomai code base too. Generally speaking,
I'll do my best to transfer knowledge about the Xenomai implementation
to people or organizations willing to contribute to the project.

Steven Seeger has volunteered to maintain the I-pipe support for the
ppc32 architecture, and I'll be working with him to ensure a smooth
transition here too.

Jan's team at Siemens is ramping up their current involvement in the
I-pipe x86 port.

PS: The project is still looking for someone who would be willing to
maintain the I-pipe arm64 port in the long run.
