Yes, I confirm that due to some innner conflicts between me and some
people from Open Source for Lithuania I'm retiring from GNOME
translations. I believe this change is for good.

It's a bit complex situation. I don't want to insult anyone, and want to
see as much people working on GNOME as possible, however I have to say
that I see Tomas as a great translator, I don't see him as great in
being good coordinator, though. As for the last few years Lithuanian
translation was mainly a one man effort, I want to see the change in
this. Unfortunately, I don't see any real benefits for the team in
replacing me with Tomas, as translation model would remain the same, I
have another candidate instead - Gintautas Miliauskas. Few months ago, I
have made him an owner of Lithuanian Ubuntu translators team, when I
left it. As he is doing a lot of things in Free software world, I even
suggest to grant him CVS access just right after his confirmation that
he is volunteering.

As I'm retiring, he would like to continue working with Gintautas
instead. ;)

As this trend continues for nearly three years already (hurray for us!),
I would be very proud of new people, new team if they would continue
this, not to mention that there's also a lot of space for improvement.

...Gintas, step up for this ;)
