Thank you, Guillaume, and hi everyone else. I will do my very best to make
as few mistakes as possible in the coming weeks and months.

(For those who don't know me, I'm mainly active on Swedish Wikipedia,
regularly edit English Wikipedia and Commons, but I try to occasionally do
stuff on a number of other projects as well. I recently started working as
a Community Liaison at the WMF.)

> Hello,
> I wanted to let you know that the Community Engagement (Product) team (CEP)
> [1] is going to gradually replace me as primary writer and coordinator for
> Tech News [2].
> When Tomasz Kozłowski (User:odder) and I started Tech News over two years
> ago,
> I didn't think it would grow to being translated to nearly 15 languages
> every
> week, or to being distributed to so many subscribers and community pages.
> Tech News was originally created as a way to connect the two communities of
> developers and content contributors, and I think it's done that job pretty
> well. In the meantime, the CEP team was created, and they have a very
> similar
> mission. They already manage very similar newsletters (like the one for
> VisualEditor) and it makes a lot of sense for them to also coordinate Tech
> News.
> I wanted to send this email to let you know about this change, so that
> you're
> not surprised when you start seeing emails about Tech News coming from the
> team. Johan Jönsson (Johan/Julle) will be the primary point of contact for
> Tech News, and he'll also be working with Nick Wilson (Quiddity). I hope
> that
> you'll be as supportive to them as you have been to me over the years :)
> Which brings me to my last, and most important point: Thank you for all
> your
> help on Tech News over the past two years. Whether you helped me draft the
> newsletter, or you diligently translated it every week, or you notified
> your
> community about upcoming changes: I'm very thankful for the time you have
> dedicated to Tech News.
> I'll still be around on the mailing lists and the wikis during and after
> the
> transition, and I hope to continue to work with you on other projects.
