Alex Russell has announced on his blog:
Two days ago I dusted off the rarely-used voting procedure for Dojo Foundation projects in order to kick off a transition that Iâ€™m very excited about: as of this afternoon, the committers of the Dojo project have elected Peter Higgins the new Project Lead for the toolkit project.
So far at SitePen, I’ve had more of an opportunity to work with Peter than with Alex. Peter’s been a knowledgeable, always helpful and fun coworker. He’s going to do a terrific job for Dojo.
Alex has done amazing work to bring Dojo to where it is today (and it’s in quite a good spot). I’m certain that we (the web development community) are going to see very cool new stuff show up as a result of Alex taking a step away from day-to-day leadership on the Dojo Toolkit.
Congrats on the transition, guys!
