This group went through some frustrating moments during its short history, but I believe that the debates we had through those months have contributed to create a better understanding of how to handle Web technology that accesses potentially dangerous functionality. This improved understanding can be seen at work in DAP's renewed productivity over the past few months. Put together with the upcoming SysApps WG, I believe that we are collectively well on our way to realising DAP's original vision. I am happy that I could play a small part in this adventure, and I really look forward to this project increasingly coming to fruition, watching it from not very far away.

I will be attending TPAC (but not DAP's meeting there) and can already taste the friendly beers we'll enjoy together there. I will continue to maintain ReSpec, and I will remain available for any questions that any of you may have.

Thanks for being an awesome chair, we'll be missing you! Your contributions have had an enormous impact in shaping DAP and its redux for better. Not to mention the awesomeness of ReSpec which has saved an unparalleled amount of effort and time of many editors.

Looking forward to hearing more about your future adventures!
