I think this is great news. I have interacted with Kevin as a fellow 
SpamAssassin & MIMEDefang user for a dozen years, worked with him more 
closely since 2016 as a SpamAssassin committer and ASF member, and 
worked as an independent consultant for PCCC (and hence with Kevin) 
since 2018. I don't believe there could be a better caretaker for 
MIMEDefang as an OSS project in lieu of Dianne.
