[Dwarf-Discuss] [Dwarf-Workgroup] Resume DWARF Committee meetings?

I will take this as my cue to retire from the DWARF Committee.

When I joined many years ago, I was working on a debugger.  For the last several years I've been maintaining and enhancing a Fortran run-time library.  As a result, debugger issues and DWARF are not part of my work-life and I can't give them as much attention as they deserve.  Further, my company will continue to be represented on the Committee, and represented by someone who is actively working on debug-code generation.

I've enjoyed being on the committee these many years.  It's good to be part of a group which works well together and is trying to do the right thing.  Thanks and fare well!

I think it makes sense to start up again.
