Officially passing the baton to Thomas Caswell


This e-mail is just to announce and make explicit what has already been the
case in reality for quite some time (since at least summer of 2016): that
the leadership of the matplotlib project is in the very capable hands of
Thomas Caswell. His ability to manage such a high velocity of issues and
pull requests is beyond astonishing, and he's brought the project forward
in ways that seemed remote when my involvement tapered off. Thomas remains
a pleasure and inspiration to work with and I know John would be proud of
how is creation is being shepherded.

As part of formalizing this, there is a pull request to bring the
matplotlib governance document draft into effect here:

Best of luck, and keep up the good work, everyone!
