I'd like to appreciate for your standing for the chair.  I have nothing 
to say if no other person volunteer for it.

Also, I would like to say thank you for Norm, for your effort and 
contribution as the chair of OpenPrinting WG.

> I would like to be the next Steering Committee chair.
> Till agrees with this and suggests that it's a good

> We should discuss this topic at our next Steering

> At any rate, I will be stepping down effective January 1, 2007
