After five years serving as Monero's lead maintainer, Fluffy Pony [Riccardo Spagni] will be stepping down, transferring duties to Snipa.

FP in a previous statement [CoinDesk 2018-05-27]:

“I was the lead maintainer across all the projects, and at some point last year I was like: I can’t do this.”
“I will always be an advocate for privacy, and for monero, a part of the monero community, but my actual responsibilities by definition need to be reduced.”

FP will remain on as a backup maintainer to relieve any duties as needed.
