preed’s post about a new owner for the Build & Release module in Mozilla reminded me to announce more officially that I’m handing over ownership of the Mozilla “Build Config” module to Ted Mielczarek (ted on IRC). Ted has been involved with the Mozilla project for a while, and has done great work with the build system, Breakpad, and other projects.
Being owner of several large modules is tough: it’s hard to just keep track of everything that’s changing in Build Config, “the toolkit”, and XPCOM, let alone provide effective leadership. I’m blessed that I can transfer part of that responsibility without fear. It will allow me to focus my efforts more effectively, particularly to lead some of the architectural changes we’re making for Mozilla 2.
