Re: [MirageOS-devel] removing self from core/maintainers list

It goes to say that Mindy will deeply missed from the MirageOS core team.  I 
looked up the very first mail she sent me, and that was on 10th March 2014 
about finding an OPW project within Xen, and kickstarted a rocket-like journey 
through to fixing pieces of almost every part of the Mirage stack, including to 
release-managing the biggest release yet in MirageOS 3.0.  Mindy's 
contributions have been felt throughout the project, and been overwhelmingly 
positive throughout.

Mindy, I'm greatly appreciative of your contributions, and also most excited to 
see what you do next in the "using MirageOS to break the rules of systems" 
space.  Don't be a stranger; I expect to see many bug reports that myself and 
others will happily try to fix for you :-)
