Hello guys,

This mail is to announce some of the role changes in the Evolution project. I have been thinking about this 
for a long time, and I feel that this is the best time to implement them.

I am proud to announce Chenthill P (chen) as the new Evolution maintainer. He is a long time contributor to 
the Evolution project and has been working in the project for over 5 years.  He is well known in the 
community for his expertise in Calendar component and has been its maintainer for the last 4 years.  He has 
been one of the prime contributors for the Groupwise provider and Microsoft Exchange Calendar. A few of his 
notable contributions include libical integration with System timezone for better Daylight savings support, 
single-model-view design of Calendar MVC and removal of libical fork.   He has mentored interns and GSOC 
students on Calendar search improvements, Microsoft Exchange Delegation support, Google Calendar 
integration etc.  

I am also proud to announce that Matthew Barnes (mbarnes) is joining Chenthill and support him as the 
Evolution co-maintainer. He has been contributing towards Evolution for over 3 years and is the Mail 
maintainer for the last 2 years. He has made significant contributions towards obsoleting several 
libraries, and helping to migrate to newer technologies. He has been working on Kill-Bonobo which is a 
major revamp of Evolution Shell. This involves rewriting Evolution components and UI which is a focus area 
for Evolution 3.0.

Going forward, I will be focusing on improving evolution infrastructure for netbooks and other devices; 
chen and mbarnes would be driving the Evolution project direction and releases.

Please join me in congratulating chen and mbarnes, and in wishing them good luck in their new roles.
