Taking a break

I’m starting a new thread here where people can flag that they are on a break. This because it’s helpful to know that somebody is away, and even more, to know when they are back.

I’ll go first:

I’ll be away from 27/09 until 11/10 (I will be there though for the plenary on 29/09). I will turn of my notifications, but I may check in sporadically. If you need me, don’t hesitate to contact me on my phone.


Hi there,
Just wanted to let you know that the evening plenarys have been a bit draining for me, and I don’t think I will be able to attend them, at least for the moment.
If that’s ok with everybody, I might attend to part of it when it is relevant and important for me to be there, but I won’t be able to stay until the end.


Hello @reeflings,

As some of you may know I have been struggling a bit lately (I’m on the way up though), and so I would like to take a little break, from now until the 22nd of May included.

What does this imply in practice?

  • @ChrisM has kindly accepted to step in as the Back-up, i.e. to take of the tasks I take on as the group coordinator

  • I don’t envisage to disappear completely (so happy to do some work), but I do need a break from the daily buzz and responsibilities.

  • I will therefore not be checking the forum (I also don’t have notifications). If you’d like me to look at something or send you a reply (PM or thread), can you please send me a message on Signal?

Thanks in advance for your understanding. I hope to be back soon feeling like my old self again.


Hello everyone,
I’ll be in Montreal from 2 to 12 June inclusive for our son Maël’s graduation. I’ll have access to wifi but not on a regular basis.
See you soon, Sébastien
