i too appreciate the gesture, but by no means do i want you or anyone
else to step down from root at mphq or the project (except maybe uoti :).
the only mistake you made was calling the vote without thinking or
consulting others, and after that, you and diego both worked overtime
to minimize the damages and cool the situation down as much as
possible. both of you have a level-headedness and bring a 'conscience'
to the team that's much needed in times like these, and i can't think
of anyone else who could have done a better job.
