For several years, the Sakai I18N and L10N workgroup has had me as the defacto chair, and when I had more time to spend in this role, it was a position that I thoroughly enjoyed. While internationalization is still near and dear to my heart, my current job has not allowed me to spend anything more than a cursory amount of time, leaving the I18N group without an effective lead.
Jean-François has gratiously offered to provide more active leadership as chair of this group, and has the support of UPMC. Although we don't have, as far as I know, any formal process for transitioning chairs of Sakai workgroups, I'd like to announce and/or nominate Jean-François as the new chair of the I18N and L10N Sakai workgroup.
I know there's a also nascient proposal to create a Apereo I18N group, though I'm not sure what the status of that group is at this time. I expect to continue to provide help, as time permits, but cede the chairmanship to Jean-François!
