I'd like to announce a change in the Tech Lead position for the
Multimedia Working Group.
Several months ago when the Multimedia Working Group needed a new team
leader on short notice, Kurt Taylor graciously accepted the challenge.
He's done a good job ensuring the team's continued success.
Being a Tech Lead brings with it a non-trivial amount of management
and administrative duties. Kurt realized that he would like to pursue
a more technically oriented (i.e. architecture and coding vs admin)
path inside Linaro. Since we do strive to put people where they are
most happy, we're going to shake things up a bit. Kurt will be
transitioning immediately to an audio focused technical role inside
the Multimedia Working Group. Ilias Biris, the project manager
assigned to the team, will take on the temporary role of Tech Lead for
the team while we search for a new lead. With Connect fast
approaching we'll begin the search for a new lead after Connect.
Ilias will continue to report to me but will take interim Tech Lead
direction directly from Kiko. Ilias's other project management duties
(graphics and OCTO) remain unchanged.
I'd like to express my thanks for all the hard work Kurt has put in
and wish him well in his new position. I'd also like to thank Ilias
for stepping up and handling this interim assignment.
