Dear all,

Just a few words to tell you that I really enjoyed forming and co-chairing ROLL for 5 years.
I would like to sincerely thank Adrian, and all other active contributors of the WG and
there are quite a few ! As a WG we can be proud of the work achieved so far with 
millions of nodes running RPL and dozens of implementations, and there is much 
more to do :-) ! Thanks also to Michael who so smoothly stepped in as co-chair quite
some time ago now, and I have no doubt that Ines will be an outstanding WG co-chair.
As pointed out by Adrian, I suggested to step down as co-chair (lack of time ...) since
I have been focussing on other technologies, still related to IoT. See you soon.
