Jon Rowe and Sam Phippen are RSpec's new leads

My first contribution to RSpec happened over 8 years ago, and I’ve lead the project for nearly 6 years. In that time, a lot has been accomplished:

During that time, my life has also changed significantly:

As much as I have enjoyed working on RSpec for the better part of a decade, I rarely have the time anymore, and when I do have the time, I often don’t enjoy it. I’m also no longer a regular user of RSpec.

In short, the time has come for me to take a step back from the project. Effective immediately, Jon Rowe and Sam Phippen are the new co-leads of RSpec. Both of them have been contributing to RSpec for years and I have every confidence they will lead the project well.

Please join me in thanking Jon and Sam for stepping forward to lead the project!
