I am sorry to see you leave, but I also understand that this is a normal part 
of working in an open surce project. While you shouldn't offer any kind of 
justification (we're all here as volunteers, or almost), I am concerned by 
this last paragraph that you wrote, going back on github.

You might have seen that we recently had some somewhat heated discussion about 
KDE on github. Could you tell us why you want to keep developing Tupi as free 
software but without it being on the KDE infrastructure? It would help us 
immensely to understand what we're doing wrong and how we could make it 

As I said, I don't ask you to discuss your decision (even if I am sorry to see 
you go), and you are not disappointing anyone, I just really ask for a little 
feedback to understand how we could improve our whole ecosystem. :-)
