planet larry migration

I wrote not too long ago that I was going to give up maintaining Planet Larry and look for a new owner.  I got a lot of offers from a lot of people who were willing to step up and help take care of the project for me — thanks guys!

Of all the submissions, one really stood out in my mind as someone who had some really great ideas for the site and was excited to take on the project — Daniel Robbins.  Daniel is the original founder of Gentoo, and currently maintains Funtoo.  He and I have worked together in the past, and despite the controversy his name may bring being attached to the project in the eyes of some, he has assured me that he will run things objectively.  I trust him, and believe there won’t be any issues.

We’re still working on the migration, which mostly means waiting for me to get some free time (crazy schedule), and part of that was announcing publicly that we have a new admin for the site.

Thanks, guys, for all your help in running the site.  It’s been good for me to work with so many users.  I always enjoy getting another perspective on how Gentoo projects are used in the wild, and this has helped a small bit to share that view.

    Ditto tante. I’ve been reading Planet Larry since I was added to it. Didn’t know it existed before then I would have started sooner!

    Thanks!
