I still watch the mailing list, and Petko is very good about checking
with me before any "major" changes to the core or discussions relating
to overall philosophy.  So far I've been extremely pleased with Petko's 
leadership in PmWiki and I'm truly grateful for his efforts.

Over the past year most of my hacking time has been focused on
Rakudo Perl 6 (http://perl6.org/ , http://rakudo.org/ ), which I've 
also been working on for about 5-6 years.  We have a major release of
Perl 6 coming out this spring, and so I've been working to complete

Most recently, on March 2nd my wife went into hospital care with a
small-bowel obstruction arising from a recurrence of ovarian cancer;
all of my time since then has been assisting with her care and
taking care of our family.  (The short-term and medium-term
prognosis for my wife is very good at this point -- we expect her
to be discharged from the hospital in the next couple of days.)

If things go well, I should be able to refocus more of my energies
on PmWiki development in the summer.  In the meantime, I'm pleased
with the progress and direction Petko is taking, and I'll continue
to act in a more "reactive/guidance" role (in response to specific 
requests) than a "proactive/development" role.

Hope this helps,
