FAQ
Thanks @izs for everything you have done with Node and I look forward to
seeing where npm goes now :)

TJ, you can now look forward to way more "harassment" from me :)

Node's growth has continued and accelerated immensely over the last few
years. More people are developing and sharing more code with Node and npm
than I would have ever imagined. Countless companies are using Node, and
npm along with it.

Over the last year, TJ Fontaine has become absolutely essential to the
Node.js project. He's been building releases, managing the test bots,
fixing nasty bugs, and making decisions for the project with constant focus
on the needs of our users. He was responsible for an update to MDB to
support running ::findjsobjects on Linux core dumps, and is working on a
shim layer that will provide a stable C interface for Node binary addons.
In partnership with Joyent and The Node Firm, he's helped to create a path
forward for scalable issue triaging. He's become the primary point of
contact keeping us all driving the project forward together.

Anyone who's been close to the core project knows that he's been
effectively leading the project for a while now, so we're making it
official. Effective immediately, TJ Fontaine is the Node.js project lead.
I will remain a Node core committer, and expect to continue to contribute
to the project in that role. My primary focus, however, will be npm.

At this point, npm needs work, and I am eager to deliver what the Node
community needs from its package manager. I am starting a company, npm,
Inc., to deliver new products and services related to npm. I'll be sharing
many more details soon about exactly how this is going to work, and what
we'll be offering. For now, suffice it to say that everything currently
free will remain free, and everything currently flaky will get less flaky.
Pursuing new revenue is how we can keep providing the npm registry service
in a long-term sustainable way, and it has to be done very carefully so
that we don't damage what we've all built together.

npm is what I'm most passionate about, and I am now in a position to give
it my full attention. I've done more than I could have hoped to accomplish
in running Node core, and it's well past time to hand the control of the
project off to its next gatekeeper.

TJ is exactly the leader who can help us take Node.js to 1.0 and beyond.
He brings professionalism, rigor, and a continued focus on inclusive
community values and culture. In the coming days, TJ will spell out his
plans in greater detail. I look forward to the places that Node will go
with his guidance.

Please join me in welcoming him to this new role :)
