Happy new year OFA community family!

As we closed out the end of 2016, we finally released our 1.5 revision of the OFA driver. This was a great achievement and I was very happy to be a part of it. As we look forward to 2017 and beyond, we are in a good position to keep providing a robust, performant, and reliable Windows NVMe reference driver.

With that in mind, I believe it is time for me to step down as acting chair of the OFA NVMe Windows community. I've been in the chair position for about two years... and this was my second stint. As with the original intent, the chair/maintainer position was designed to rotate between companies in much the same way the NVMe promoters group works.

As I prepare to step down, I have talked to a potential candidates for replacement. As always, I believe the OFA community should nominate and vote on its new chair. In that spirit, I would like to nominate Uma Parepalli. Uma has been a strong advocate of the OFA NVMe Windows driver (and all open source NVMe drivers) and has led technical talks in previous Flash Memory Summits. I've personally spoken to Uma and I believe he would make a great chair.

At this time, I would like to call for any other nominations for the OFA NVMe Windows chair. Please submit any nominations before Feb. 10th, 2017... at which point, I will call for a vote.
