Most of the mozdev board has been involved with mozdev for many years -- several of us have been involved for all 9 years. If we are abandoning ship, it is a _very_ slowly sinking ship.
As Brian said earlier, it's simply time for some fresh faces -- people with new ideas and new energy.

The Mozilla Foundation has been very generous in the past and there's certainly a possibility for future funding -- but not without a clear plan.
As Brian said earlier, we don't feel that hosting is a problem in the community as it once was so the way forward is unclear. A new community council will hopefully bring some new ideas into the process of figuring out a path forward.
> What are your predictions for the future for Mozdev?
It could be a range of things -- the site and community could grow and thrive or it could slowly wind down as people go to other sites and tools. Personally I think the site should remain as a historical record even if people weren't actively using it any more.
