As many of you know, I've been the lead of many different PHP libraries over the years: Contact_Vcard_Parse, Contact_Vcard_Build, DB_Table, Text_Wiki, and others. As each matured, I handed them over to other maintainers who continued to improve on them and take them to greater heights. Now that time has come for Savant, one of my early and favorite PHP projects.

Due to time constraints, mostly because of my Solar framework project, I haven't been able to pay as much attention to Savant as I think it deserves, so I made the hard decision to put it up for adoption. Lucky for the Savant community, Brett Bieber (aka Salty Beagle) of the PEAR Group picked up on that call right away. Brett is now the steward and lead developer of the Savant Template System for PHP.

The transfer of code, domain names, and hosting is complete, but the transition period might be a bit bumpy, so please bear with us. Brett is committed to "carrying the torch" for Savant (his words). Anyone who wants to help out the new project lead can contact him at "brett.bieber --at-- gmail --dot-- com".

Thanks, Brett, for taking over the project, and good luck!
