Hello Biopythonistas,

After 4 years on the Biopython project, I am turning leadership 
responsibilities over to Brad Chapman.  While I've enjoyed working on 
Biopython, my responsibilities at my day job has grown considerably 
over the last year, reducing the amount of time I can afford to spend.  
While I will no longer be the point person on the project, I will still 
stay involved and help out where I can.  Please do not send inquiries 
about the project or its organization directly to me any longer.  
Instead, please send them to biopython-dev at biopython.org.

What does this mean for the project?  Probably good things, since 
Biopython is in great hands!  :)  I imagine that for the short term, 
things will likely continue the same way.  In the long run, however, 
Brad has some exciting ideas about the direction of the project.

Also, I'd like to thank everyone who has helped out with Biopython and 
have become part of the community.  Although I, and now Brad, have been 
nominally "in charge," Biopython is really a community-driven project.  
It would not have been as successful if not for people who have put in 
hours of their "free" time in part for altruistic reasons.  Let's keep 
up the good work!  I, for one, am eager to see where Biopython goes, 
and how it supports biology research in the future.
