For me, Guido's participation just hasn't been agreed to by him yet 😉. I
have viewed the retirement email as saying "you all have to decide how you
want things to be as I'm not going to force something upon you" and not a
mic drop of "I ain't participating". But Guido hasn't spoken up yet as I
think he's still processing all of this. So I'm just hedging my phrasing in
case he takes a pass.
