I haven't seen anyone else volunteer yet and time is running out. I still think having some fresh perspectives would be great, but to avoid having no nominations in ~24 hours when the nomination period ends I'll go ahead and nominate myself.

As mentioned before, I've been at it a while now, and I don't expect my approach to change much. I'll continue to try and keep a focus on sustainability of our services and work upstream and downstream to ensure we're doing what we can to keep things running. If you'd like to see a different approach you have about a day to volunteer :)

I'll keep it short since I feel that my approach is a known quantity. Happy to answer any questions if you've got them though.
