Today we have heard from KB that he is stepping down from the CentOS Board of Directors.
On behalf of the Board, I want to thank KB for his years of leadership. His work on the project, and in the community, has made the world a better place in tangible ways that affect millions of sysadmins on a daily basis, and that's hard to measure or quantify.
On a personal note, I've appreciated his advice, insight, and mentorship as I took the reins of the Community Manager position. His stories and introductions paved the way for success in a role that has been very rewarding and a lot of fun.
I know that many of you have stories about how KB has influenced your life - professional and personal - and we'd love to hear them. We encourage you to send them to the centos-devel mailing list in the coming days, or post them in the comments here. I'm sure that you, like myself and the Board, wish him well as he moves on to other challenges in the coming years.
On a governance side, you should be thinking of who you might wish to nominate to fill his seat on the board, and look for details in the coming days, on the centos-devel mailing list, of how that process will work.

Thank you KB!
Grammatically misleading title. "Stepping Down" is a present continuous tense construct which implies an ongoing process whereas the announcement that had **already happened** "With immediate effect" means it a done deal.
What's curious is that immediate effect after 17 years don't jibe; but I guess that's the new normal of automatons.
