Lourie, thanks for the work and many hours that you have no doubt put into getting the chapter to this point.  I am glad that you seem to be leaving on good terms and with no bitterness or drama... but from what I've seen from you I'm not surprised at that.  Best of luck also with your studies.

Thanks Dumi. I would love to be part of the team hosting a South African Wikimania! Let us see what happens. :)

All the best on your academic year ahead. I trust that you will not lose the wiki fire in you, and that you will return in time for Wikimania 2015 bid.

Hi Lourie,
As someone who often struggles to balance work and extracurricular activities, I understand and support your decision.
Best of luck with your studies, and I hope your lobbying efforts will bear fruit; that's a very important topic which impacts free knowledge globally.
