Hello,

This is to announce that Daniel and Mark have decided to step down
from their role as Global Maintainers. So, I will apply the attached
patch right after sending this email.

On behalf of the entire GDB community, I would like to thank both
Daniel and Mark for their outstanding contributions to the GDB Project.

It is hard to date when Daniel actually started contributing to
the GDB project, but looking at the email archives, I found his
first contributions sometime in 2001. Daniel quickly became a
trusted contributor, resulting in his first being nominated 
the maintainer of a number areas of the GDB code base, until
he was then invited to join the group of Global Maintainers
in Nov 2002.  The project was very fortunate to have Daniel be part 
of it, particularly during a long period where he was taking care of
reviewing a very large portion of the patches submitted for inclusion.
Thank you, Daniel!

I found Mark's involvment to be even earlier than Daniel's,
finding a contribution in Apr 1998 [1]! Mark's high-quality 
contributions quickly led to a number of nominations until 
we was nominated Global Maintainer in sep 2000. Over the years,
Mark made a significant contribution to the project in various
ways. Not only was he an active contributor and maintainer of
many targets systems and architectures, he also helped the project
tremendously through his careful reviews. Thank you, Mark!
