Steve Jobs once said:

> “I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: "If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?" And whenever the answer has been "No" for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.”

After 8 years of Qt, it's time to say goodbye. Both from my employment in The Qt Company and my roles in the Qt Project. I'd like to thank those of you in the company and in the Qt Project who have supported me over the years in various ways. It's been a great adventure. Friday, February 23rd will be my last day.

I hereby relinquish my role as Maintainer of Apple build system support across all projects under the Qt Project umbrella (nominating Oswald Buddenhagen as my replacement), and my role as Maintainer of the Apple watchOS platform (nominating Tor Arne Vestbø as my replacement).

Please feel free to contact me at jake.petroules at petroules.com if you have any questions, comments, or otherwise.

I wish you all the best.

Jake Petroules
