Hey just wanted to let you folks know that https://github.com/bitcoin/bips/wiki had some unrelated content. I reverted it, but maybe the page(s) should be locked since this isn't the first time it has happened.

Hi all, I’ll be leaving Chaincode Labs next week and will no longer be contributing full time to Bitcoin Core. I won’t be entirely gone, just contributing within the restriction of my leftover bandwidth (IIRC fjahr has been doing this).

Nominating is different from Volunteering someone -- for example if I said "who here thinks they are the best c++ programmer in Bitcoin", we'd probably dunning-kruger ourselves into the best person being too humble to put themselves out there. Smart people are shy oftentimes! A nomination process "who do you think is the best C++ programmer in
Bitcoin?" invites more personality types to be put forward, and eliminates the social awkwardness of self promotion/confidence.
It is highly likely that my grandchildren will be accessing the bitcoin network using GUI-enabled software. And I'll do my best to ensure that it will be Bitcoin Core.
As for Qt, the Bitcoin Core project packages a GUI, and the GUI is a part of Bitcoin Core. As such, the move to Qt6 will be inevitable. A big motivation for the work on this change is to accommodate for the move to Qt6.
