The SMF project welcomes Suki as the new PM!
« on: February 17, 2016, 07:58:25 AM »
The SMF project recently had its annual elections for the PM position.

After many years in the position (albeit with a short break) I have stepped down as Project Manager of the Simple Machines Forum project. I will continue to be involved with the project, providing support and what-have-you, but I don't feel that I have the time to commit to the PM role.

Suki - a long-time team member who has "worked" on the support team, the customization team and has been one of the key developers in the support of the 2.0.x branch and the ongoing development of the upcoming 2.1 branch - was elected as the Project Manager of SMF.

Suki is well respected by the team and the community in general. She has some great ideas and excellent goals - and, actually, will be the first active developer who has taken on the role of PM.

I look forward to seeing her lead the project into the next release and beyond.

Please join me in welcoming and congratulating the new Project Manager.

It's always good to keep freshening things up.

But what does this mean to the general public, to which this notice is targeted? Will anything change?
