This is sad, but I guess life happens and things change and time constraints change too.

Thanks a lot for your work on KDE, you are the oldest bugzilla gate keeper, looking at all those 
reports (any ones you didn't have a look at? :D).

(Actually you gave my account elevated privileges when you saw me regularly commenting on bugs a 
couple of years ago, so thanks for that too, it was a very appreciated leg up :))

I wish you and yours the best and hope to still see you around; when time permits and there is an 
itchy bug that bothers you enough to warrant a patch to fix it :)
